Keynote Lecture: Dr. Erika Doss, Professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame

The Art History and Archaeology Graduate Student Association at the University of Missouri invites submissions from graduate students that investigate marginalized topics and call attention to many issues that remain overlooked or outside the central focus of our fields.

“From the Margins” is an umbrella term that can incorporate many topics, including (but not limited to):

  • Artists from socially marginalized communities
  • Rural areas and/or borderlands
  • “Marginal” styles or genres
  • Regionalism
  • Marginalia
  • Outsider Art
  • So-called “minor” arts

Topics from any historical period of Art History, Archaeology, and other fields related to visual and material culture will be considered for twenty-minute presentations. The keynote lecture will take place on Friday evening and student presentations will be held on Saturday, March 19.

Proposals should consist of a  250-500 word abstract and a CV. Submissions should be submitted electronically to [email protected] no later than January 10, 2016. Please feel free to circulate this CFP and the Symposium flyer with any related departments at your institution.
