Art and Culture in the Long Nineteenth Century

This reading group will convene virtually to discuss both primary and scholarly texts related to art and culture in the long nineteenth century. Each week our group will focus on a different theme and assigned text(s); on occasion, we will also invite select speakers whose research pertains to the theme. Themes will include: artistic collaborations; digital humanities; art and the environment; fragments; nationalism and national identity; new approaches to scholarship; quality and taste; tone; race and color; and suffering. In addition to these themes, we will leave open the possibility of determining future topics as a group based on the individual research interests of our members. This open format will allow us to address questions that arise in the course of our dissertation work as a group and allow for the most inclusive curriculum.  For more information please contact [email protected].
