Nancy Um is chairing a research panel at the conference “Art and Architecture in the Long Eighteenth Century: HECAA at 25,” November 1-4, 2018, held at Southern Methodist University, and currently accepting proposals for presentations. See the panel abstract and submission details below.

Research Panel: People, Places, and Things in the Global Eighteenth Century
Increasingly broad in its definition, the “global eighteenth century” is often used to point to the widened geographic scope of the field, particularly in instances of visual exchange that push past perceived cultural boundaries or hinge upon the movement of artists, art objects, and visual practices across extended distances. This panel aspires to a more rigorous notion of the global eighteenth century: one that questions stable and enduring associations between people, places, and things; examines interactions, movements, and exchanges that are multi-sited rather than binary; and/or takes into account the structures and institutions that facilitated, but also encumbered, eighteenth-century travel, trade, and exchange. Please submit a proposal using this form by February 7, 2018.
