Eighteenth-Century Directions: Postgraduate Research Conference

University of Birmingham, 10 June 2006

Deadline: 1 February 2006

The History of Art Department at the University of Birmingham is organising
its first one-day postgraduate-led conference on all aspects of
eighteenth-century art and visual culture, and invites proposals for
20-minute student papers.

The conference will be a valuable opportunity for students of
eighteenth-century art to share their research in a friendly environment,
gain new ideas, prompt new directions in their studies, and to network with
others.

To coincide with the conference there will be an exhibition of
eighteenth-century illustrated travel literature, selected from the
collections of the Barber Art Library and Birmingham University Library's
Special Collections. All speakers and delegates will have the opportunity to
visit this exhibition. They will also be able to enjoy the wider collections
of the Barber Institute in which the History of Art Department is situated.
The Barber has particularly outstanding holdings of eighteenth-century art.

Proposals of around 300 words in length, along with your name, contact
details and institutional affiliation, should be sent to Caroline Walker:
carolineglyncotts.freeserve.co.uk, by the closing date of 1 February 2006.

The conference is being held with the support of the Paul Mellon Centre for
Studies in British Art, and the University of Birmingham Postgraduate
Centre.
