'Lingering in the Memory Palace. Rethinking the Archive through the History of Art'.
Senate House, School of Advanced Study, London WC1E 7HU
12 November 2019.


For the 2019 Archive Week, the University of Kent in conjunction with the School of Advanced Study, University of London is launching a 1-day conference on the function of the archive in art. This conference investigates the concept of the archive and its relationships with the arts and the history of art. We aim to create a constructive dialogue within the wider artistic community and across different disciplines to share opinions, experiences, and expertises; we believe this will be an exciting opportunity to unpack and reflect on the importance and significance of an essential theme such as the archive, which is often not understood in its complexity. Any proposal on the archive and its methodological, theoretical, and artistic implications is welcome. We are particularly interested in Ph.D. Students, researchers and artists working with new methodologies and innovative approaches to the archive to unpack its contemporary significance as a physical as well as metaphorical, personal as well as collective space.


 Please send proposals to the organizers, Marta Colombo (mc909@kent.ac.uk) and Stefano Farinelli (sf472@kent.ac.uk), by Friday, September 15, 2019.


Paper proposals must include:
– abstract (150 words max)
– paper title (20 words max)
– your full name, current affiliation, email address, and Ph.D. completion date (past or expected)
– a brief c.v. (300 words max, and must be in list, not narrative form) / portfolio
– a list of keywords (8 max)
