Applications are now being accepted for a graduate student workshop in coordination with the symposium, “In Search of Global Impact of Asian Aesthetics on American Art and Material Culture.” This symposium is a collaboration between the Department of Art History and the Winterthur Program of American Material Culture, and is funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
Graduate students from a variety of fields, from all regions of the world, are invited to submit a short abstract of a dissertation in progress or a project that: 1)redefines the canon of art history, with a focus on the multidirectional impact of Asian aesthetics on American art and material culture, and/or 2) proposes new interpretations of the transcultural and transhistorical flow of aesthetics that not only redefine the geocultural boundaries of Asia and North America, but also rethink methodological formations of aesthetic emergence.
The workshop and symposium will take place October 10-14, 2018 at both the University of Delaware and Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library. Registration is now open and the event is free and open to the public.
For more information, please visit the symposium website. Applications are due June 8.
