Call for Papers

16th Annual Yale University American Art Graduate Symposium

Embodiment in the Arts of the Americas

Department of the History of Art, Yale University, New Haven, CT/USA

April 4, 2020



Keynote Speaker: Dr. Anna Arabindan-Kesson, Assistant Professor, Department
of Art and Archaeology and Department of African American Studies, Princeton


The body exists as the site of productive and oppressive forces. Questions
of embodiment stand at this nexus: How is the body acted upon? In turn, how
does it manifest its own agency and sovereignty? The body is vulnerable to
systems of control and violence, and yet allows us to consider particular
and personal subjectivities. In an age of precarity, in which economic,
ecological, and political forces exert themselves on the body, we must also
consider the physicality and agency that the body possesses. How does
cultural production help us think about these issues?


The Sixteenth Annual Yale University American Art Graduate Symposium invites
submissions that present new ways of thinking about art's relationship to
embodiment. Considerations of embodiment oscillate between process and
product: the process of making and the materiality of the object. This theme
also encompasses the ways in which bodies can serve as experiential vessels
of meaning, as well as effect their own resistance. We invite submissions
that address art and material culture across North, Central, and South
America and the Caribbean that engage a range of critical perspectives and
speak to a variety of time periods and artistic practices.


Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

*	Physical corporeality, flesh, and figuration
*	The circulation and life histories of objects
*	Materiality as mediation of human experience
*	Clothing, textiles, and adornment
*	Dance, ritual, movement, and performance as expression and
*	Kinship and intimacy
*	Regimes of control and methods of resistance
*	Religion and spirituality
*	Hauntology, possession, and incarnation 
*	Affective, sensorial, and haptic experience
*	Critical phenomenologies of queerness, race, disability, and gender
*	Migration and diaspora
*	The built environment and architectural spaces
*	Virtual reality and disembodiment


Interested participants are invited to submit an abstract of no more than
350 words (we welcome any related image) along with a CV to
