image - GoyaIn July 2012, in advance of commemoration of the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, Tate Britain is to host a two-day conference exploring the impact of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars on world-wide visual culture, from the outbreak of the pan-European conflict with France in 1792 to the present day. Centred on themed panels, plenary lectures and workshops, this cross-disciplinary conference will promote knowledge and understanding of the range of ways in which the ‘First Total War’ has been mediated in visual cultures, not only in Britain and continental Europe but throughout the world.

The organisers are keen to receive proposals for papers that present new research and/or methodological approaches. In particular they encourage proposals from scholars from different disciplines who wish to work in collaboration with each other. More information, including a list of suggested topics, can be found here.

Citizens of the World Conference: Adapting (in) the Eighteenth Century 22-24 June 2012

Co-sponsored by the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
and The Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and The Division of English at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

In a rapidly globalizing and technophilic world adapting to new developments is a daily undertaking—increasingly, we are aliens in our own lives. How quickly and effectively can we adapt to innovations in technology, historical knowledge, cultural relations, and academic and economic practices? In honor of Oliver Goldsmith’s fictional Chinese traveler, Lien Chi, and in the spirit of cross-cultural collaboration, the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (SCSECS) is partnering with the Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) and the Division of English at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU) to host “Citizens of the World,” an international, interdisciplinary conference dedicated to exploring the many ways in which new experiences stimulate self-reflection and adaptation as creative acts.

Abstracts of 250-500 words should be submitted by 15 January, 2012 to the chairs listed on the full CFP here OR to conference organizers at: https://legacy.ncl.ac.uk/owa/redir.aspx?C=2f32ec1cec2446f39985491543a56de9&URL=mailto%3aworldcitizen%40ntu.edu.sg.
