Call for papers
Late Venetian Fortification

Until now, research on Venetian fortifications has given considerable more attention to Cinquecento works than to the achievements of the following centuries. This is why the aim of the conference is to focus on the later period. New material and insights are expected on the period starting with the War of Candia. Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

- important fortification sites and projects (Morea, Corfu, Corinto, Dalmatia etc.)
- activity of military engineers
- procedures and institutions involved in the construction of fortifications
- Schulenburg's involvement in fortification construction

Proposals for 30-min talks should be submitted to no later than 15 January 2019. Applicants will be notified by 15 February 2019.

Proposals should include: title of the paper; abstract (max 1500 chars); short CV with bibliography; affiliation; contact

Conference languages: English, Italian

The presenters are expected to cover their travel and accomodation expenses.

Selected contributions will be published in the conference proceedings.

The conference is part of the research project "Antun Jančić and Fortification Architecture of the Venetian Republic" funded by the Croatian Science Foundation and conducted at the Institute of Art History in Zagreb.
