        Subject: Call for Papers: Visual Arts and Global Trade in the Early American Republic


Salem, Massachusetts
Tentative Date: March 6, 2010
*Deadline Extended*

American participation in global trade increased dramatically during the
Early Republic.  American ships ventured beyond the Cape of Good Hope and
Cape Horn to expand direct contact with China, India, Indonesia, Southeast
Asia, the Philippines, and other parts of the Pacific world.  This trade
brought widespread access to Asian arts and other visual materials and
profoundly influenced American visual arts. While much of the literature on
the arts of the Early Republic has focused on building nationalism in the
wake of the Revolution, this conference investigates the state of early
American internationalism.  How did global trade contribute to knowledge and
culture in the Early Republic, particularly in the arts? We invite papers
and proposals that examine the impact of global trade from the 1780s to the
1840s on all aspects of visual art production: painting, sculpture,
architecture, garden design, ceramics, furniture, silver, wallpaper,
textiles, fashion, and other media.  We also invite papers on the
transmission of artistic ideas—through eyewitness accounts, illustrated
books and prints, imported images and objects, museum collections,
patronage, art markets, and other topics.

Honoraria and travel support for speakers are available through a generous
grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art. Organizing institutions
include Salem State College, the Salem Maritime Historical Site (National
Park Service), and the Salem Athenaeum.  The conference will provide
opportunities to tour Salem’s magnificent Federalist architecture and museum
collections.

To submit proposals for papers, please send an abstract (300 to 500 words)
and a brief c.v. via email to pjohnston at salemstate.edu.  Proposals may also
be submitted by mail to Visual Arts and Global Trade conference, c/o
Patricia Johnston, Art Department, Salem State College, 352 Lafayette
Street, Salem MA 01970.

Proposals must be received by September 10, 2009. Speakers should be willing
to revise their papers for later publication.  Texts and visuals for the
presentations are due in December 2009.
