CALL FOR PAPERS: Pedagogic Relations: Art and Art History

Deadline: 30 October 2019

Conference: UCL February 2020

This conference will look at how the relationship between teacher and student plays out in the making of art and its histories. Within this pedagogic dynamic, what is replicated and what is changed? Where are the points of departure and do they always lead to progress? And, in the transmission of knowledge, what is lost and what is gained? In accounting for the teacher-student relationship in the production and dissemination of art and art history, this conference will track art’s often overlooked intellectual histories, providing an occasion to chart new routes into existing research.  

Proposals are invited from all periods and geographies within the history of art. The sites of learning can range across institutional frameworks such as art schools, universities and museums, as well as informal and horizontal pedagogic structures such as reading groups, writing partnerships, and collaborative practices.

Please submit abstracts (350 words) and short biographies to and by 30 October.
