“INKS: Writing, Imaging and Medium in the Interdisciplinary Nineteenth Century”
Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Special Panel
February 15-18, 2023
New York City
The Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) will be holding a special panel at the College Art Association's 111th Annual Conference, February 15–18, 2023 at the New York Midtown Hilton.
The Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies Association (INCS) is excited to announce its call for papers to the CAA conference in 2023. The organization’s theme this year is “inks,” broadly construed. In keeping with the organization’s focus on drawing together fields of literature, history, music, and the arts, we are looking for papers on nineteenth-century topics drawing on some aspect of “ink,” which is not only a homonym for our organization’s title but also one of the primary bonds between the areas we represent. Possibilities might include explorations of the medium of ink itself; representations of writing, letters, or books; printing or print media; tattoos; contracts or documents; or even non-human variants such as the cephalopodic or the botanical. Ink may also be “inky” in relation to color theory or ideas about color, skin color, or race in the nineteenth century.
For more information and abstract submission, please contact Nancy Rose Marshall at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Submit proposal by email to session chair Nancy Rose Marshall (email@example.com) per CAA Submission Guidelines (including completed proposal form and shortened CV) by August 31, 2022.
