The Medieval Postgraduate Colloquium
Works of art from the Middle Ages have retained their allure over the many centuries since their production, but details regarding their original display, reception, and haptic qualities have been obscured by the passage of time. Museum installations, online street-views or virtual tours, digital image banks, 3D models and other modern forms of viewing aim at providing immeasurable access to art objects from all periods but the ability to capture the work as it was originally meant to be viewed varies greatly with each technology.
The Courtauld Institute’s 21st Annual Medieval Postgraduate Colloquium invites speakers to consider new approaches for understanding how medieval works of art were originally meant to be experienced (sensorially, phenomenologically, materially, etc.) and how issues of viewership have played a role in the study of these works.
Applicants will be notified by the beginning of November.
Organised by Maeve O'Donnell-Morales and Bryan Keene (Courtauld Institute of Art).
Please send proposals for 15 to 20-minute papers of no more than 250 words and a CV to Maeve.Odonnell@courtauld.ac.uk and firstname.lastname@example.org(Bryan Keene), no later than Friday 2 October 2015.
