The conference is aiming at fostering discussions on art and society in modern history.

HISTART '15 Call for Papers: Art and Society
The History of Art Conference aims to trace the path of the dialectic correlation between art and its influence by and upon the society within which it is formed. This correlation is predicated on the explicit relationship between art practice and society from earliest times to the present. During the conference, and within the context of exploring this relationship, well known periods and moments from the history of art will be brought to the agenda and new areas of interest that will be revealed by this perspective will be explored.
