RSA Annual Meeting, Dublin, 30 March–2 April 2022
Please be aware that CCE posted a Call for Papers for the RSA Annual Meeting in Dublin in 2022.
We invite proposals for papers concerning collecting networks in Central and Eastern Europe with a focus on collectors, artists and agents operating in the territory of the Holy Roman Empire and neighbouring kingdoms and principalities during the period between c.1452 and 1648. Although situated in a region of great cultural importance, such networks remain understudied in favour of traditional geographies in Western and Southern Europe.
Considering the development of recent research, for example on early-modern Dresden, one may assume that Central and Eastern European collectors followed trends and standards of collecting also recognisable in the rest of Europe and adapted them to their own norms and requirements. We know hoever that the exchange travelled both ways, as is illustrated by examples of collections of naturalia made of rare materials from North-eastern Europe or gardens as sites of plant collections, influencing and altering ideas dominant in the South and West. Obviously, all categories of collecting items are considered from antiquities and luxury objects to fine arts or scientific tools.
Within this panel we want to focus on networks established within the lands of the HRE, as well as on collections and collectors linked to agents from the West, overseas territories and the Ottoman Empire. Matters of provenance and social issues may also be investigated.
Please send your proposals of no more than 250 words together with short bio blurbs (100 words max.) to collectingcentraleurope@gmail. com by 5 August at the latest.
RSA plans to hold a second - virtual - meeting for later in 2022 and we may send out a call for this event as soon as we know more about requirements and regulations.
