Appel à contribution : « Artistic Interactions between Italy, Spain, and the Americas (1500–1750) », Visual Culture in Early Modernity, date limite le 16 décembre 2019
This edited volume will focus on the circulation and reception of early modern Italian and Spanish art and architecture in North and South America and vice-versa. A deeper understanding of the questions and issued raised by empire, colonialism, imperialism can be better understood by triangulating this project’s focus on artistic exchanges among Italy, Spain, and America.
In contrast to Spain’s involvement in the Americas, general claims about Italy’s indirect participation in the American colonial enterprise have endured. Recent scholarship about artistic relations between Italy and the Americas is quickly dismantling this myth. This anthology will consider cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, and inter-medial approaches that address how different media, materials, and objects acted as agents of interaction and exchange in the transatlantic world.
I welcome papers from not only art historians but also scholars in history and literature. The proposal for this edited volume will be sent to Routledge for their Visual Culture in Early Modernity series. If you are interested in contributing to this project, please send me (Lisandra Estevez) an abstract of 250 words and a narrative C.V. of 150 words by December 16, 2019: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also contact me by email you should have further questions about this project.
