Call for Papers: “Collecting and Identity: Definitions and Interpretations” (Bratislava, 16 – 17 May 2024)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

The Department of Art History at Masaryk University in cooperation with the Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava announces a Call for Papers for the forthcoming conference entitled “Collecting and Identity: Definitions and Interpretations” to be held in Bratislava on 16 – 17 May 2024.

The conference will draw attention to the convergence between diverse areas of collecting. Contributions on collecting in the private and public sphere, the theory and practice of collecting, and those focused on the past and present of the practices will examine similarities and differences in the research of collecting and emphasize the diversity of ways the concept of identity in collecting can be interpreted. The conference focuses on art collecting, but it also welcomes contributions from other areas, such as sociology, anthropology, psychology, museology… The goal is to offer a platform for different approaches, methods and queries that could be used for interrogating the concept of identity and its meaning in the field of collecting.

20-minute-long contributions will be presented in English or Slovak/Czech. Please send an abstract of your proposed contribution of around 250 words together with a short biography of the author to: identity.collecting@mail.muni.cz, by 12 January 2024.
