UAAC-AAUC Conference 2017 Congrès Call for Paper: Session 13: The Art of Time October 12–15 Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta
Submission deadline: May 12, 2017

Session 13: The Art of Time
Depictions of Time from Ancient Greece to the Modern and Contemporary have largely been informed by studies in anthropology, narratology, phenomenology, and philosophy. The writings of Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Bergson, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, and Gell have shaped the images of time from its portrayal on art objects to its representation in new media. This panel seeks to explore the relationship between Art and Time and encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue on the meaning and function of Time in Art.
