American Society for Hispanic Art Historical Studies at College Art Association 2018: Call for session proposals

American Society for Hispanic Art Historical Studies
(ASHAHS)

If you have thought about chairing a panel at the annual meeting of the College Art Association, Los Angeles, 21-24 February 2018, please consider submitting a proposal for ASHAHS sponsorship. As an affiliated society, ASHAHS is able to sponsor one ninety-minute session at this conference.

We seek session proposals that represent the vibrant diversity found within Iberian and Ibero-American art history and welcome those panel topics that will stimulate both broad interest and robust discussion.

Guidelines for proposals from affiliated societies may be found here, including CAA’s requirements concerning membership.

If you would like a panel to be considered for ASHAHS sponsorship, please submit your proposal to Carmen Ripollés or Kelly Watt.  Deadline: 7 April 2017.

Proposals will be evaluated on their scholarly strengths and, all other factors being equal, priority will be given to current ASHAHS members who have paid dues this calendar year. Our goal is to promptly notify the chair(s) of the proposal selected for ASHAHS sponsorship well in advance of CAA’s deadline for session and individual proposals.

Conference, Index of Christian Art (Princeton)

2017-02-ica-logo

The Medieval Iberian Treasury in the Context of Muslim-Christian Interchange

Index of Christian Art
Princeton, NJ,
19-20 May 2017

In collaboration with the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas in Madrid and Princeton University’s departments of Art & Archaeology and History, the Index of Christian Art will sponsor a two-day interdisciplinary conference,

The medieval treasury offers an extraordinary material witness to the desires, aspirations, and self-conception of its creators. Treasuries could function as sources of gifts (and obligations) for their allies, as prestigious private storehouses for ostentation before an elite audience, or as financial reserves that could be made use of in times of need. Luxury items from non-Christian cultures, such as the many Islamic objects that found their way into church treasuries, or those made from materials of great intrinsic value, such as ivory, gold, silver, or silk, became even more valuable if the piece were turned to a sacred use. We will examine these dimensions of the treasury by giving special emphasis to the rich holdings of the royal-sponsored monastery of San Isidoro de León in northern Spain. Taken as a whole, both texts and objects offer a rich body of evidence for interdisciplinary investigation and serve as a springing point for larger questions about sumptuary collections and their patrons across Europe and the Mediterranean during the central Middle Ages.

Hosted at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, the conference brings together international and US scholars from multiple disciplines and professions, with specializations including Islamic law and sumptuary production, Christian chronicles, patronage and royal studies, identity and gender studies, and political history across the cultures of medieval Spain. The diversity of questions and perspectives addressed by these scholars will shed light on the nature of treasury collections, as well as on the broad efficacy of multidisciplinary study for the Middle Ages.
