SOUTHEAST OF NOW: Directions in Contemporary and Modern Art | Volume 2 (Numbers 3 and 4): Movement Website: To be published March and September 2018, in print and online, by NUS Press. Deadline: Sep 1, 2016 One of the great storied spaces of our modern period can be located in the travelling of ideas, (art) objects and humans around the world. These movements are spurred on by ever dynamic and variegated social forces — they are made mobile through notions of exchange, relation, plunder, migration, exile, reconstitution, transfer, refuge, entanglement. Human interactions on such a global scale are central to the ideas, aesthetic objects, cultural production and labour of our times.

New book series | Renaissance History, Art and Culture with AUP – Call For Proposals

The Marriage of the Virgin, Raphael Sanzio da Urbino 1504

General Editors: Christopher Celenza; Samuel Cohn, Jr.; Andrea Gamberini; Geraldine Johnson; and Isabella Lazzarini. This series investigates the Renaissance as a complex intersection of political and cultural processes that radiated across Italian territories into wider worlds of influence, not only through Western Europe, but into the Middle East, parts of Asia and the Indian subcontinent. It will be alive to the best writing of a transnational and comparative nature and will cross canonical chronological divides of the Central Middle Ages, the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period. The series intends to spark new ideas and encourage debate on the meanings, extent and influence of the Renaissance within the broader European world.  It encourages engagement by scholars across disciplines —…
