Special Issues of Arts on “Ancient Mediterranean Painting”

Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: Arts — Open Access Journal
Deadline: Sun, July 1st, 2018

We invite article proposals for two Special (thematic) Issues of Arts on the subject of “Ancient Mediterranean Painting.” Arts is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal which provides a forum for scholarly exploration of the arts. We are particularly interested in the potential for scholarship in our fields to reach a wider, more diverse readership and reflect diverse approaches.

The complete description of the “Ancient Mediterranean Painting” Arts Special Issues Information can be found via the links to each volume:

Volume 1 will be dedicated to painted works issuing from Greece, the Near East, Egypt, Italy, and Sicily in the years roughly between 3000-100 BCE. Anticipated areas of discussion include, but are not limited to, wall painting in private houses, tombs, palaces, temples; the painted decoration of ceramic vessels; and mosaic as a representational medium closely aligned with evolving trends and techniques in painting.

Volume 2 will be focused on painting from roughly 100 BCE to 600 CE in the Mediterranean, starting from the Italic peninsula as a crucible whose interactive elements included Greek and Etruscan, and expanding outward to consider Roman spheres of contact and exchange across Europe, Africa, and the Levant. Anticipated areas of discussion include, but are not limited to, wall painting in domestic and public spaces, tombs, and relationships between across media and functional and geographic boundaries.

If you are interested in contributing to one of these volumes, please send an abstract by July 1, 2018 to:

Abstracts for Vol. 1 (painting to c. 100 BCE):
Annette Giesecke,; and Mark Stansbury-O’Donnell,

Abstracts for Vol. 2 (painting c. 100 BCE-600 CE):
Regina Gee,; and Vanessa Rousseau,

We look forward to hearing from you and will be in touch about submitting final articles, which will be due 20 February 2019.
