CFP: “Threads of Circulation”

Ohio State University, Department of History of Art

Columbus, OH, April 11 – 12, 2014

Proposals due: January 17, 2014 (extended deadline)

This conference seeks papers that address and examine the shifting 
trajectories and connected histories of individual objects and
 ideologies across time and space. Over the last decade, there has been 
increased interest in network culture in ancient cultures, the early
 modern world, and postmodern globalization. This conference will focus 
on the ways in which material culture – singular artworks, objects, and 
technologies – reveals what Sanjay Subrahmanyam proposes as “the at
 times fragile threads that connect the globe.” In paying particular
 attention to perhaps paradoxical heterogeneity and following the
“fragile threads” of memory, history, and culture, this conference

Curator Leah Dickerman further stresses the transmedial reach of abstraction beyond the traditional domains of painting and sculpture, by foregrounding abstract photography, music, dance, and poetry, paralleling the institution’s own disciplinary re-orientation beyond painting and sculpture.…

CFP: IU/OSU Student Conference: Publics and Networks: Discourse, Circulation, and Power

March 1 – 2, 2013; Indiana University, Bloomington

The 6th annual collaborative conference between The Ohio State University Folklore Student Association and the Folklore & Ethnomusicology Student Associations at Indiana University aims to create a space for graduate and undergraduate students to share their research in folklore, ethnomusicology, cultural studies, material culture, performance studies, and related disciplines connected to the study of academic and vernacular interpretations of everyday life.

In “Publics and Counterpublics” (2002), literary critic and social theorist Michael Warner describes a public as “a space of discourse organized by nothing other than discourse itself” (50).
