Call for Papers: Art Nouveau – 3rd coupDefouet. Barcelona, 27-30 June 2018.

University of Barcelona & Barcelona City Council.

The coupDefouet International Congress on Art Nouveau is an activity of the Art Nouveau European Route association, and it is organised by the University of Barcelona and the Barcelona City Council. Congress sessions will take place in Barcelona on 27-30 June 2018.
In this third edition of the coupDefouet Congress, the main thematic strand proposes to look into new perspectives on Art Nouveau heritage of cities by means of cinematographic language. A second theme strand centres on the relationship of Art Nouveau works and artists with politics, while the third strand explores the importance of drug use and/or attitudes towards sex in Art Nouveau artists. A final section on research and doctoral theses in progress completes the programme.
The Call for Papers is open until 15 December 2017. Submission requires a 100-word summary of the paper, accompanied by a 100-word CV of the proponent. Paper submission must be in English, although at the Congress itself the oral presentation and written version of an approved paper may be delivered in English, French, Spanish or Catalan.
The full call for papers, theme stands, and more information are available at www.artnouveau.eu.
