Transgression And Liminality In Iberian And Latin American Art: Emerging Researchers Symposium, Durham University, 7-8 July 2022

Venue: Room PCL054, The Palatine Centre, Stockton Road, Durham, DH1 3LE

On 7 and 8 July Durham University’s Zurbarán Centre will host its second student-led symposium showcasing innovative doctoral research in Iberian and Latin American art and visual culture.

The theme of this year’s symposium is transgression and liminality, with presentations exploring a wide variety of periods and geographies. The 19 papers, drawn from 14 academic institutions, range from the bounding of traditional artistic movements to the confronting of the borders of mind and body, of religion, and of societal norms. The presentations will address important questions relating to art and politics, the circulation of art and artefacts, visual traditions across different media and periods, identity issues, cultural heritage, and modernity. The symposium also features an invited keynote address by Dr Laura Fernández-González from the University of Lincoln.

The student presentations and the keynote lecture will be followed by opportunities for questions and answers. The aim is to stimulate interdisciplinary conversations and connections among emerging and established scholars engaged in the field of Iberian and Latin American art.

Organised by Durham University doctoral students, the symposium will be held as a hybrid event for in-person attendance in Durham or virtual attendance via Zoom.
