Binghamton University

The phrase “cut and paste,” in its most fundamental definition, is the process of selecting and combining fragments. Inspired by an established commitment to critical research, this year’s conference aims to explore the assortment of thematic, methodological, and sociopolitical interpretations derived from the traditional concept of extracting and adhering.

The twenty-third annual Crossing The Boundaries Conference, hosted by the Art History Graduate Student Union at Binghamton University, invites submissions from any historical or disciplinary approaches that involve a literal or conceptual appropriation achieved through cutting and pasting.

Potential topics might include (but are not limited to):

  • Collage, bricolage, assemblage, montage
  • Authorship, plagiarism, imitation
  • Censorship and editing
  • Fragments / Fragmentation
  • Cultural traditions and historical change
  • Recontextualization
  • Sociopolitcal statements
  • Accumulation and composites of found objects
  • Invention or production through appropriation

Proposals for individual papers (20 minutes maximum) should be no more than 250 words in length and may be sent by email, with a current graduate level CV, to binghamtonctb@gmail.com (Attn: Proposal). We also welcome proposals for integrated panels. Panel organizers should describe the theme of the panel and send abstracts with names and affiliations of all participants along with current CVs. A panel should consist of no more than three papers, each twenty minutes in length. Deadline for submissions is January 30, 2015. For more information, see our website or follow us on twitter.

On November 10, Associate Professor Karen Barzman presented a paper, “Cartography and the Bounded State – A Genealogy,” at the Syracuse University History Department Workshop.

Karen Barzman is Associate Professor of Art History at Binghamton University. Trained as an early modern Italianist, she has developed a set of critical concerns informed by semiotics and continental philosophy. Discipline Representative for Art History and Architecture at the Renaissance Society of America (RSA), she also serves on the editorial board of the Society’s journal, Renaissance Quarterly.

She is currently working on two books – The Limits of Identity:  Venice, Dalmatia, and the Representation of Difference, which looks at borderlands as thresholds of difference, and Cartography and the Paper Management of the Early Modern State, a genealogy of mapping in the context of the imperial archive.
