Art History, Worldwide, Early Modern Period

Accepted Language(s):
German, English, French, Italian


This series aims to extend to the field of art history the critical investigations pertaining to the human body that have expanded recently from a variety of approaches within the humanities, social sciences, and cultural studies. The series will focus on the early modern period and will include all geographic areas. Il will consider manuscripts which develop new approaches of the body in art, proposing methodologies which study the body (its internal systems as well as its exterior surfaces) as it has been shaped by specific cultures, beliefs and norms which are themselves produced by specific social relations. The goal is to engage with a discourse born outside of art history and encompasses humanistic as well as social scientific research and cultural studies.
