CALL FOR PAPERS:
SECAC 2011, November 9-12 in Savannah, GA
Revisiting the Civil War:
As sesquicentenntial commemorations of the Civil War unfold, it seems a propitious time to consider what influence the war had on art, artists, and visual culture in the United States. This panel
seeks to broadly consider the impact of the war on representation, patronage, collecting, and the art market both during and after the conflict. Topics may include but are not limited to: explorations of the ways in which artists on both sides of the conflict depicted slavery and the war, the role that photographers and the pictorial press played in presenting the war to American and international audiences, the use of propaganda and the visual culture of the state during the war, the appearance of Civil War imagery in later painting and public monuments, the iconography of post-war sectional identity, and the impact of the war on Northern and Southern fortunes and art patronage.
