[1] Transmediality in Global Netherlandish Art

From: Dawn Odell <>

Date: Mar 20, 2017

Subject: CFP: Call For Papers – Historians of Netherlandish Art, Ghent

Deadline: Jun 1, 2017

A central challenge of a global history of early modern art is how to integrate macro-historical and long-distance approaches with the micro-historical analysis of individual works and their makers. One way of connecting cross-cultural exchanges to the technical, stylistic, and thematic aspects of objects is to focus on ‘transmediality’, or the crossovers between media to which the works’ cultural biographies testify. Drawings were turned into prints and paintings of varying sizes; forms and themes were reshaped in new materials; the materials themselves were imitated or even forged; and boundaries between painting, architecture, and the applied arts were crossed or ignored.

Lieu : université de Gand, Belgique.

This one-day workshop on early modern cultures of collecting aims to bring together approaches from the domains of art history, the history of science, and material culture studies. Of particular interest are the processes through which collected objects became sources of artisanal, artistic, or scientific knowledge and innovation. Users and beholders of collections were invited to observe, investigate, depict, and question individual objects and their interrelationships, and as such, collections could become ‘catalysts of knowledge’.

Workshop is free of charge, but places are limited, so please register online at :
