7th International Forum for Doctoral Candidates in East European Art History, May 6-7, 2021

The Institut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte at Humboldt University  will host the 7th International Forum for Doctoral Candidates in East European Art History on May 6 and 7, 2021. The forum serves as a platform for exchange amongst junior researchers who focus on Eastern European art.

The yearly meetings offer a space for exchange regarding methodological and practical problems surrounding various dissertation projects, as well as an opportunity to network with one’s peer group.

The 2021 Forum will focus on the close interconnection between the Eastern European cultural sphere and the rest of the world, as well as its entanglement with various historical, social, political and cultural constellations on the local, regional, inter-state, and global level. Historical material (e.g. archival materials and personal memory) will be emphasised, with particular attention drawn to the processes of historicization.

We invite doctoral candidates to apply with their dissertation topic. The 2021 forum will take place on Zoom. The event will be held in English.
