  1. Hello all, I'm writing to share a current CFP for Boston University's Art History Journal, SEQUITUR: SEQUITUR Issue 9.1 Fall 2022 CFP: “Spectacle” Deadline: September 30, 2022 The editors of SEQUITUR, a graduate student journal published by the Department of History of Art & Architecture at Boston University, invite current and recent graduate students to submit content on the theme of “Spectacle” for our Fall 2022 issue. The term “spectacle” encompasses various meanings. Derived from the Latin words spectaculum (“a public show”) and spectare (“to view, watch, and behold”), a spectacle is something enacted to be seen or arranged specifically for display. “Spectacle” as a term evolved from associations with early English drama in the seventeenth century to more abstract concepts for understanding postmodern society. Cultural and political theorist Guy Debord identifies a “society of the spectacle” in which excess imagery mediates human interpersonal relationships. Definitions of spectacle and performance are often intertwined in contemporary media such as film, multimedia installations, and other immersive spaces. For this issue of SEQUITUR, we seek emerging scholarship that explores ideas, expressions, and experiences of spectacles in art, architecture, and material culture from antiquity to the contemporary period. Possible subjects include, but are not limited to: performance; theater; film/cinema; stages (literal and figurative); mise-en-scène; multimedia; exhibitions; presentation; display; constructed/immersive spaces; interactivity; sound art and soundscapes; music; noise; audibility; pandemonium; commotion; clamor; order/disorder; chaos; intoxication; excess; the extra/extraordinary and exceptional; sensation; flamboyance; stimulation; seeing and being seen; mirror(s) and mirroring; carnival; circus; menagerie; pageantry; comedy; tragedy; entertainment; celebration; revelry; audience(s); storytelling; rituals (sacred and profane); magic; transformation; immortality and the beyond; procession; disguises; masking; creation and hiding of identities; portrayal (self or other); ego; celebrity; glory/glorifying/glorification; artifice; concealment; deception; culture and its appropriation. SEQUITUR welcomes submissions from graduate students in the disciplines of art history, architecture, archaeology, material culture, visual culture, literary studies, queer and gender studies, disability studies, memory studies, and environmental studies, among others. We encourage submissions that take advantage of the digital format of the journal. Founded in 2014, SEQUITUR is an online biannual scholarly journal dedicated to addressing events, issues, and ideas in art and architectural history. SEQUITUR engages with and expands current conversations in the field by promoting the perspectives of graduate students from around the world. It seeks to contribute to existing scholarship by focusing on valuable but often overlooked parts of art and architectural history.

  2. Heyy wanted to create an applicant thread for art historians at Oxford, if I can find any others on gradecafe haha!!
  3. I applied to the Art History PhD programs at UC Berkeley and University of Toronto and I'm still waiting to get a response from the schools. I checked and saw that three people had posted about the UCB program and they all heard in late January/early February, so I am rather concerned that I am still waiting for a response over a month after the people who have posted. I saw that people who applied to UT began getting responses back in January and others have been receiving responses since then, but I'm still worried that I am still waiting to hear. Is anyone else still waiting to hear from University of Toronto or UC Berkeley? When should I be contacting the schools about my application? Any advice is appreciated!!
  4. Anyone apply and hear anything yet? I applied to 6 schools, got rejected from 5, and Bryn Mawr is my last hope (the wait is killing me). I also think I have the best chance of getting in here than anywhere else I applied. I saw one person who had been wait-listed in Feb of this year, but that's it. Any rejections or acceptances? I'm dying here.
  5. I've just graduated with a BA in History of Art and am taking a year off before enrolling in an MA programme, which means I should soon start applying for 2017 entry. My main area of interest is 19th century European painting - French (and American) and German - and, besides the Courtauld programme, I've so far found very few programmes in the UK which offer units/options on 19th century art, so I'm kind of lost as to what other MA programmes I should apply for in order to pursue my interest in 19th century painting does anyone have any advice? thanks in advance
