6th Forum East Asian Art History       

 Freie Universität Berlin, Kunsthistorisches Institut, Ostasiatische Kunstgeschichte and Museum für Asiatische Kunst, SMB, June 16 to 17, 2017

Venue: Museum für Asiatische Kunst, Small Lecture Hall, Takustr. 40, 14195 Berlin

The Forum East Asian Art History is a yearly meeting of junior faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and doctoral students in the field of East Asian art history or related fields. Since East Asian Art History as an academic discipline in the German-speaking area is institutionally placed between East Asian Studies and an Art History focusing on Europe and America, the Forum aims at providing our field with an independent platform.

The 6th Forum will serve as a venue for presentations on individual research projects and for the discussion of methodological and institutional perspectives in the field. We encourage proposals for reports on ongoing research projects and graduate theses. Papers with a focus on methodological issues are particularly welcome. We also invite proposals for themed panels with three to four speakers. The program will include a section with reports from the institutes and a visit to the storage of the Museum of Asian Art.

To apply for a twenty-minute presentation, please send an abstract of 300 words and a short CV (max. 1 page) to Juliane Noth ( Panel proposals should include abstracts for the panel and for each paper. Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2017. The Forum will be held in German and English. Currently, the organizing committee is applying for financial support. At this stage, travel grants for speakers cannot be guaranteed. Please try to secure travel funding from other sources.
