From reception studies to transhistorical art history:

method & theory in the study of the Nachleben of art and literature (28 June, 2017)

 This masterclass for PhD researchers and advanced research master-students will explore the methodology of art and cultural historical reception study. The focus will lie in particular upon research that is concerned with the reception of the visual arts, and literature, from before ca. 1800 (medieval and early modern) in the modern period 1850-1950, specifically in private and museum collections, as well as in the arts generally.

In this masterclass we will excavate the methodological challenges and opportunities of reception history in arts and literature. There will be ample room for discussion, as well as presentations, mini-lectures, discussion of sources and group reflection.

Speakers include Elizabeth Emery (Montclair University, New York), keynote; Professor Juliet Simpson (Coventry University/Universiteit van Amsterdam), Professor; Dr. Tessel M. Bauduin (Universiteit van Amsterdam), principal lecturer; and guests from Coventry University, Ateneum Art Museum/Finnish National Gallery, and the Rijksmuseum.
