THE ART OF THE NETWORK: VISUALISING SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS, ca. 1400 - 1600
Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]
Posted by: Courtauld Institute of Art
Deadline: Fri, April 28th, 2017
In recent years, the analysis of social networks has generated a fruitful field of scholarly enquiry. Research addressing the dynamics that govern personal relationships within and without communities of various kinds has permeated through historical, anthropological, and sociological studies. However, the role of art and architecture in cultivating these interpersonal relationships has not been explored comprehensively. Even art historical approaches have frequently given preference to textual rather than visual evidence in elucidating these social networks.
This conference seeks to shed light on the ways in which social networks have been represented visually. Such an approach has great potential to deepen the discussion surrounding the commission, production, and reception of art and architecture between 1400 and 1600.
The conference is free and open to the public.
Advanced registration strongly encouraged:
