Call for poster presentations for Master and PhD students - Art and Visual Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent, 16-17 May 2014 Deadline: 1 April 2014

On 16 and 17 May 2014, the European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art, the Research Platform XIX and the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent will organize the international conference “The Turbulent Mind: Madness, Moods and Melancholy in the Art of the Nineteenth Century”. The conference will be held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent and will accompany the current  Géricault exhibition in the museum. 

Belgian and Dutch Master and PhD students whose research bears on nineteenth-century art or visual culture are invited to present their research on this occasion in a so-called poster session during the conference’s lunch and coffee breaks. A maximum of 6 eligible students and junior researchers will be assigned a table on which they can present their research on paper (text and images). These presentations should be in English and should include the following elements:
- A visually attractive and intelligible layout;
- The researcher’s name, affiliation and email address for further contact;
- A clearly stated research question and methodology;
- Some salient examples or case studies;
- Illustrations of the subject researched;
- Possible hypotheses or preliminary conclusions.
Participants to the conference will be able to circulate during the breaks and to engage in discussion on the presented research with the presenters. A summary of their research will also be distributed to all conference attendants.

This is your chance to be noted by an international audience of academics, museum professionals and other specialists in the field!

We invite all interested students and junior researchers to submit an abstract (brief summary) of their proposal (in English) to TheTurbulentMind@hotmail.com, by 1 April 2014 at the latest. The presented research does not have to bear on the conference’s main theme: we welcome all papers relating to the art or visual culture of the long nineteenth century. The organizing committee of the conference will make a selection of the proposals and will confirm acceptance by 15 April 2014. Travel and other expenses will, unfortunately, not be covered.
