Call for Applications - Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices

Up to 10 postdoc fellowships. Closing Date: 28 February 2013

News from Jan 27, 2013

The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien invites scholars to apply for up to ten postdoctoral fellowships in the framework of the new research program "Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices".

Art Histories and Aesthetic Practicesis designed to open the disciplinary boundaries of art history to a transcultural, global horizon. By creating a space of dialogue for scholars from all continents and regions, it discusses the potential and contours of a plural art history. It especially invites scholars from Islamic, Asian, African, European, Latin American art histories to join the program and also addresses neighbouring disciplines such as archaeology and other fields dealing with the history of visual cultures. The program has no chronological or geographical constraints. It collaborates with the museums of Berlin and university departments in and outside Berlin, and aims at an intense interaction of art historical institutions. Its scholarly environment is designed to enable and encourage both fellows and the wider community to explore transregional approaches to the history of visual cultures and aesthetic practices.

Closing Date: February 28, 2013
