The Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture invites papers for its sponsored panel at the 58th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Western Michigan University, May 11–13, 2023.
Audience and Action in Byzantine Ceremonies
Session organized by Nikolas Churik (Princeton University) & Erik Ellis (Hillsdale College)
This panel invites a wide-range of papers on the question of popular presence and participation in Byzantine public ritual. In particular, the panel is interested in idealized and non-idealized participation. It aims to consider especially how the people are understood to take part in public ceremonies through their normative representatives (guilds, nationalities, ethnic groups) or upset those norms due to some limiting factor (geography, social status, ability). The papers may come from relevant disciplines (literary/area studies, history, religious studies, art history, among others) and from any relevant linguistic or cultural field.
To read the full call for papers, please visit https://
Abstracts of 300 words are due September 15, 2022. Abstracts must be submitted using CONFEX, the conference portal (https://icms.confex.com/icms/
Please submit any questions about the panel to Nick Churik (nchurik[at]princeton.edu).

What kinds of unique contributions can visual art make to create communities in the classroom and beyond? Incorporating core tenets focusing on decoloniality, combating institutional racism, and issues of intersectionality and social justice, there is increasing interest in engaging communities by means of visual expression. The advent of numerous terms index this, for example, Eco Art, New Genre Public Art and Social Practice. Interactions are crucial to foster awareness and space for collaborations. However engaged visual culture extends beyond studio practice to art education and art history with related concepts, such as, embodied and experiential learning. Fundamental to each of these instantiations is a focus on the power of civic engagement to experience and cultivate social change. From empowering marginalized communities to redefine museums, to public events providing opportunities to experience ancient technologies, to graduation requirements and university promotion guidelines highlighting community engagement activities, the dynamic and vital role of engaged communities is widely recognized within and beyond the Academy.
Given the myriad possibilities for partnerships among communities, this session asks: How is visual art uniquely positioned to engage communities both inside and outside of the classroom? How have you incorporated local partnerships to both teach students and build community relationships? What worked and what failed? Is community engagement a sustainable curricular format? Artists, designers, art educators, art historians and museum professionals are invited to submit abstracts focusing on visual art and culture concurrently integral to a teaching event or class and a community engagement partnership.
Proposals are due 23.59/11.59 pm PST on 31st August 2022.

What is Eastern European Art?
CAA’s 111th Annual Conference | New York City | February 15–18, 2023
Session sponsored by the Society of Historians of East European, Eurasian, and Russian Art and Architecture (SHERA)
Dr Daniel Reynolds, University of Birmingham d.k.reynolds@bham.
The legacies of ancient and Christian Greek culture exerted a powerful influence in western Europe, the Slavic territories, and the Islamic principalities around the Mediterranean rim from the end of antiquity to the fifteenth century, but the transmission of these legacies was neither straightforward nor without difficulty. From the seventh century onwards, we find intellectuals, theologians, poets, and artists actively discovering, appropriating, and adapting many aspects of Greek literature, medicine, science, and theology to serve their own ends. This conference examines the channels of transmission that allowed premodern people from western Europe to the Eurasian Stepp to the northern fringe of the Sahara to find the lost legacies of the Greeks, from the industry of the translators who rendered Greek texts into Latin, Arabic, Armenian, and Georgian to the activity of the cultural brokers who travelled back and forth between medieval Europe, Byzantium, and the House of Islam (diplomats, merchants, or soldiers) to the appropriation of Greek cultural objects for the purpose of devotion or as spoils of war. Interdisciplinary in its approach and expansive in its geographical reach, this conference will consider the impact of Greek learning on medieval theology, medicine, philosophy, law, literature, history, material culture, and the transmission of the classical tradition.
We welcome papers that consider the following or related questions:
Please submit an abstract and cover letter with contact information by September 15, 2022 to email@example.com
