Revolutionary and Napoleonic France (CAA Dallas Feb 08)

Amy Freund

I am looking for papers for a panel I am chairing on the visual arts in
Revolutionary and Napoleonic France at the College Art Association
conference in Dallas, TX, in February 2008. Here is the official call
for papers, which can also be seen (along with a description of the
conference and the guidelines for proposals) at:

Since the celebration of the 1989 bicentennial, scholarship on the arts
in the Revolutionary period has expanded exponentially. However, many
aspects of art production between 1789 and 1815 are just now being
explored. This session will focus on new directions in the history of
the arts in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. Topics might include:
the impact of the collapse of the Académie on art theory and practice;
the exhibition, marketing, and collecting of art; the careers of female
artists; the implication of the visual arts in political culture; the
effect of the Revolution on understudied media such as architecture,
sculpture, book illustration, fashion, and the decorative arts; the work
of French artists abroad (or of foreign artists in France); and the
pre-Revolutionary origins and post-Napoleonic afterlife of contemporary
artistic developments.

Please send proposals by May 11, 2007 to:
