Call For Papers: Re-Reading American Photographs
Guest-edited by Monica Bravo and Emily Voelker
Panorama, Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art, seeks proposals for papers on the topic of “Re-Reading American Photographs.” Accepted papers will appear in a guest-edited section of Panorama issue 6.2 (Fall 2020).
The editors seek focused essays of approximately 5,000–6,000 words that engage with the methodological and historiographic questions of American photographs and their interpretations. These texts may take the form of single-object case studies, examinations of intimate networks, and/or interdisciplinary, collaborative exchanges. These papers should move beyond the construct of the US nation-state in their examination of photographic practices that demonstrate dialogue with the longer histories of migration, interchange, and transculturation that have defined the Americas. The editors encourage authors to consider the unique advantages of the journal’s online platform, which permits various digital enhancements, such as high-resolution images with zoom capabilities, the embedding of moving images and films, interactive maps, and the reconstruction of historical exhibitions, to name a few possibilities. For consideration, please send a 250-word abstract to guest editors Monica Bravo at firstname.lastname@example.org and Emily Voelker at email@example.com by February 17, 2020. The deadline for papers will be July 1, 2020.
