3rd International Forum for Emerging Scholars at UT Austin: Call for Papers

February 2nd, 2012 · No Comments

We are happy to announce our call for papers for the 3rd International Forum for Emerging Scholars at the University of Texas at Austin, October 25 – 27, 2012.

The title for this year’s Forum is: “Synchronicity. Contacts and Divergences in Latin American and U.S. Latino Art. 19th Century to the Present.”

Histories do not have to be narrated according to fixed points in space and time–political regimes, decades, styles–but rather as processes of creative dialogues, both simultaneous and divergent, real and imagined. Latin American and U.S. Latino art should be viewed within a framework of parallelisms and flows where contacts and relationships, encounters and dis-encounters, understandings and misunderstandings inform artistic production and its discourse. Critically comparative methods can be fruitful in understanding artistic production at different moments and disparate locations. This Forum seeks to present multiple, if sometimes dissonant, voices in a concert of exchange.

Questioning national and international narratives, we seek to host, through rigorous and specific case studies, modes of historiography that break down causality and homogeneity in favor of comparative perspectives. This approach encourages scholars to think in wider terms, beyond established topics, in relation to other historical/geographical developments.


The deadline for submitting proposals is March, 15, 2012.

We appreciate your help in circulating this CFP among colleagues and contacts.

The 2012 Forum is co-sponsored by CLAVIS, Center for Latin American Visual Studies, University of Texas at Austin; RASC/a “Rhetorics of Art, Space and Culture,” Southern Methodist University; the Graduate Program at the Instituto de Altos Estudios Sociales, Universidad Nacional de San Martín (IDAES-UNSAM); the Graduate Program in Visual Arts (PPGAV) at the Escola de Comunicação e Artes, Universidade de São Paulo (ECA-USP); and the Graduate Art History Program at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
