>We invite you to submit abstracts for the 38th Annual UCLA Art History
>Graduate Student Association Symposium, the longest running art history
>student symposium in the U.S. This  year we will devote a day in response to
>the topic ́Migrations of Art: Scripting and Staging Subjectivities.î
>
>One of the preoccupations with the production, uses, interpretations and
>significance of art has been intricately engaged with the construction of
>subjectivities. Such a critical intersection has relevance for visual
>practices across cultures, places and times. We propose this conference as a
>site of migrations, movements and exchanges of ideas that examine the
>economic, political and aesthetic constructions of art and subjectivity in
>art history.
>
>́Migrations of Artî seeks to examine the complex connections between art and
>subjectivity and to address the ways art and criticism can show the fluidity
>and complexity of different subjectivities, from addressing the
>multiplicities of subjectivity that result from the migration of people, art
>objects and ideas in different localities and moments, to an emphasis on the
>destabilization of subjectivities in identity politics. Some related
>questions might include: How are personhood (individual or collective) and
>historical contexts conceived vis-ư-vis the art object? How has the
>intersection of art and subjectivity been deployed and understood as a
>political (or apolitical) project? How have artists and scholars used the
>art object to confer or deny subjectivity to different constituencies? How
>have art historians used the art object to construct both the subjectivity
>of others and of their respective selves? As people, art objects and ideas
>dislocate and relocate, how can we construct knowledge that does not
>reproduce hierarchical relationships of power and stabilize subjectivity?
>
>This symposium invites papers from graduate students from all disciplines on
>topics that engage such a dialogue. We encourage innovative,
>cross-disciplinary topics related to art history and visual culture.
>Abstracts of 250 words or less should be submitted along with a C.V. by 15
>June 2003 (postmark date).
