CfP: The Roman Art World in the 18th Century and the Birth of the Art Academy in Britain. Rome, 10-11 December 2018

Call for Papers: The Roman Art World in the 18th Century and the Birth of the Art Academy in Britain. Rome, 10-11 December 2018

The Accademia Nazionale di San Luca and the British School at Rome (BSR) invite submissions for papers for the conference The Roman Art World in the 18th Century and the Birth of the Art Academy in Britain, to be held in Rome between 10 and 11 December 2018. The conference will focus on the role of the Roman pedagogical model in the formation of the British academic art world in the long 18th century.
If past scholarship has concentrated mainly on the activities of British artists while in Rome, this conference wishes to address the process of intellectual migration, adaptation and reinterpretation of academic, theoretical and pedagogical principles from Rome back into 18th- century Britain. It responds to the rise of intellectual history, building on prevalent trends in the genealogy of knowledge and the history of disciplines, as well as the mobility and exchange of ideas and cultural translation across borders.
The conference welcomes diverse approaches to investigating the dissemination of the academic ideal from Rome to Britain.
The full cal for papers is accessible here and on the conference webpage.
Please provide a concise title and abstract (250 words maximum) for a 20-minute paper. Send your proposal, with a current CV of no more than two pages, to humanities@bsrome.it Proposals must be received by midnight, Monday 12 March 2018. Speakers will be notified of the committee’s decision in mid-April 2018. Travel grants will be available.
