Coinciding with PAFA’s exhibition, Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit, this March 24, 2012 symposium focuses on intersections of faith, identity, and history in a broad range of works created by modern and contemporary African American artists with special interest in Christian symbols, themes, and motifs relating to issues of faith, family, and community and the struggle for freedom, equality, and justice.
We seek 20-minute papers that examine specific examples of art from the turn of the 20th century to today, exploring such aspects with special interest in art historical methodology.
Paper proposals of no more than two pages double-spaced should be submitted along with a cover letter and c.v. to ALL symposium co-chairs, Dr. Nikki A. Greene firstname.lastname@example.org, Dr. Emily Hage email@example.com, and Dr. James Romaine firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submission is October 1, 2011.
