École de Printemps “Imagination”

École de Printemps “Imagination”, Genève, 8 au 12 mai 2017

The 15th International Springtime Academy organised by the International Consortium of Art History will take place at Geneva University from 8–12 May 2017 on the theme of ‘imagination’. The Academy will bring together doctoral and post-doctoral students of a whole range of disciplines and specialisations to share research, working methods and experience in an international and interdisciplinary dialogue with advanced scholars and professionals. The programmes of previous Springtime Academies are available on the website www.proartibus.net. Participation in the Springtime Academy is a prerequisite of obtaining a supplementary diploma in the pursuit of international studies in art history.
We thus recommend masters, doctoral and post-doctoral students to submit a precise outline of their research subjects, whatever field and period of art history they are studying and whatever forms of expression they wish to address.

Presentation of the subject
Art and imagination have always been closely related, for reasons both obvious and complex. The 15th Springtime Academy will be dedicated to this theme, in order to clarify its multiple dimensions. Primarily, imagination is the faculty to invent and to conceive. In consequence, the word ‘imagination’ denotes the result of the act of imagining, which may be articulated as the ‘imagined or imaginary object’, and made manifest in the act of ‘rendering visible’ or ‘representing’. In light of this reading, the poietical dimension of the word ‘imagination’ – its capacity to bring forth, to engender a thing – gains in significance. The daily sessions of the 2017 Springtime Academy will therefore be devoted to reconsidering the notions, functions and achievements of imagination in art and architecture throughout history.

Postgraduate students – PhD and Postdoctoral – who would like to participate are asked to submit a proposal for a paper of no more than 15 minutes length, together with a short CV that includes foreign language abilities. Proposals should be 1800 characters or 300 words in length and can be written in English, French, German, or Italian. They should be submitted in a Word document, and should include the name of the applicant, mailing address (electronic and postal), the institution and the country where the applicant is registered. The proposal and the CV should be attached as a single document to an
email and identified in the subject heading by the applicant’s name and country in which the applicant is registered (formal requirements on the website www.proartibus.net). Emails should be sent to: edp2017[a]unige.ch until February 20th, 2017.
