Appel à communications pour le colloque « Vikings, Gods and Heroes. Northern Antiquity in Visual Art after the Middle Ages »

NORDIK 2015 — Mapping Uncharted Territories – The 11th Triannual Nordik Committee for Art History Conference

Le colloque se déroulera du 13 au 16 mai 2015 à l’Université d’Islande et The Nordic House Reykjavík. La remise des propositions devra s’effectuer par courriel avant le 25 septembre 2015.

“The 2015 conference will explore questions about the structure of the “art-world” and the establishment of hierarchies in terms of a dichotomy between “center” and “periphery” have been important in art historical discourse for the past decades, within the nordic coun- tries as well as in other countries fnding themselves in a peripheral position; many of those are questions related to ideas of identity and power, as well as attempts to address the possibilities of empowerment of those that perceive themselves to be in a marginal position.

In recent decades it has become increasingly evident that the lack of research into the non-centric aspects of art has left us with a very incomplete picture of art history in general, its forms, structures and forces. We now perceive an increasing need to travel to those largely unchartered territories and attempt to map them, categorize them and understand, in order to criticize and disrupt the centric and provide a more coherent art-world view where both center and periphery are included in a comprehensive manner.”
