Russian Art and Culture Group
Second Graduate Workshop
School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Research IV, Campus Ring 1,
Jacobs University Bremen, June 04, 2015
Deadline: May 4, 2015
Language: English
Submission Deadline: May 4th, 2015
The second graduate workshop of the Russian Art and Culture Group aims
to take a cross-epochal perspective at the changes in the perception of
Russian Art in an international context from the early 19th century
until today. The two major questions we wish to explore are: “How is
Russian art perceived and for what reasons?” and “How do Russian
artists want to be seen and what instruments do they use to achieve
their goals?” Papers might explore the following topics:
–    cultural and national stereotypes
–    perception patterns
–    political groups and alliances
–    the art market
–    internal art discourses
–    transcultural phenomena
We invite doctoral students, postgraduate researchers, and established
academics to submit proposals for 30 minute presentations. Please, send
an abstract of no more than 500 words along with a short biographical
introduction to Rebecca Wichmann rlnwichmann@gmail.com and Tanja
Malycheva malych@uni-muenster.de.
