Art, Architecture & Design

MID-ATLANTIC POPULAR | AMERICAN CULTURE ASSOCIATION

2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

November 2-4, 2007

Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel Philadelphia

As the phrase "fine arts" is theoretically inseparable from the dialectic of its institutional history and that of visual culture, its socio-historical context, or the model of anthropology, this forum invites papers investigating both mediums of the fine arts on their own or through their intersections with other cultural arenas. Topics include painting, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, photography, design, fashion, electronic media, installation, and land art—either medium-based or within an interdisciplinary context. Proposals for individual papers or entire sessions are welcome. Professors interested in coordinating sessions of student papers—graduate or undergraduate—are also encouraged to submit.

Deadline for Proposals: June 15, 2007.

Please send a one-page proposal, CV & audio-visual needs to:
Raphy Sarkissian
School of Visual Arts, Art History
209 East 23 Street, New York, NY 10010

MID-ATLANTIC POPULAR | AMERICAN CULTURE ASSOCIATION

CFP--CALL FOR PAPERS

FASHION AND MATERIAL CULTURE

2007 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

November 2-4, 2007, Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel Philadelphia

Attire and fashion condition and are conditioned by contemporary popular culture across its "high/low" territories: from designer (Giorgio Armani) to TV (Oscar Awards) to cinema (The Devil Wears Prada or Marie Antoinette) to music (Madonna) to the art world (artist, artwork, critic, art dealer, consultant, collector, auctioneer, curator, museum director) to photography (Richard Avedon) to printed media (Vogue) to World Wide Web (Gucci) to Wall Street to Street Culture—to name only a few iconic instances of style and the costume arena. In being so, apparel remains to be analyzed either on its own as an aspect of design and aesthetics through its formalism and historicity, or sociologically in relation to the "high/low" polarities of the past or present, from such perspectives as “class,” “ethnicity” or “gender,” often unfolding paradoxical cultural phenomena. Proposals that attempt to either historicize or critically examine aspects of fashion within specific or broader contexts are equally welcome. Please send a one-page proposal, CV & audio-visual needs to:
