The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

CFP: Intersections

From H-ArtHist:



2 ­ 4 APRIL 2009

Manchester Metropolitan University, MIRIAD
Call for Papers

The 35th Association of Art Historians conference will focus on the intersections (connections, linkages, overlaps) of art history with different disciplinary, methodological, political and historical spaces.

It is hoped that the sessions will attract participants from across disciplines and art practices to open up fully debates and explorations of art history as a discipline of intersections.

If you would like to offer a paper, please visit the list of sessions and the 'Call for Papers' for the individual sessions which are posted on the websites of both the AAH and MIRIAD

Paper abstracts need to be submitted directly to the session convenor(s), not to the conference convenor. You will find a Paper Submission Form on the websites.

Deadline for submission of paper abstracts: 10 November 2008.

Conference Convenor: Patricia Allmer,
Conference and Bookfair Administrator: Cheryl Platt,
MIRIAD, Manchester Metropolitan University, Righton Building, Cavendish Street, Manchester, M 15 6BG
