Om Netværket

Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier er et nordisk forskningsnetværk støttet af Nordforsk 2004-2007. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgarde Studier vil styrke og koordinere mindre og spredte nationale forskningsmiljøer, bidrage til at fremme udveksling af viden om forskelle og ligheder mellem de nordiske lande og gøre nordisk avantgardeforskning internationalt synlig. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier afholder en årlig konference. Netværket danner også ramme for udarbejdelsen af De nordiske avantgarders kulturhistorie i 4 bind og et elektronisk arkiv for dokumenter fra de nordiske avantgarder. Det nordiske forskningsnetværk er en videreudvikling af det danske forskningsnetværk ”Avantgardernes genkomst og aktualitet” støttet af Det humanistiske Forskningsråd 2001-2004. Under forberedelse er et Europæisk Netværk for Avantgarde og Modernisme Studier, EAM, hvis første konference afholdes i Ghent, Belgien, maj 2008.

About the Network

The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies is supported by Nordforsk 2004-2007. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies aims to support and coordinate small and dispersed national centres of research, help promote the exchange of knowledge about differences and similarities among the avant-garde currents and research in the Nordic countries, and make Nordic avant-garde research visible in a European and international context. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies has a yearly conference. Within the Network an editorial group is preparing a four-volume Cultural History of the Nordic Avant-Gardes and an electronic archive of documents from the Nordic avant-gardes. The Nordic network is an extension of the Danish research network ”The Return and Actuality of the Avant-Gardes” supported by the Danish Research Council 2001-2004. A European Network of Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies, EAM, is under preparation and will have its first conference in Ghent in May 2008.

CFP: Cultural Identities in Newsreel Cinema after 1945

(Lausanne, 22-24 Nov 12)
Lausanne, Switzerland, November 22 - 24, 2012
Deadline: 01.11.2011

Constructions of Cultural Identities in Newsreel Cinema after 1945
Not least due its function as a tool of propaganda during the two World Wars, the production of newsreels after 1945 commanded a large arsenal of stylistic and technological means as well as skilled people. Although the period immediately after WWII proved to initiate the last phase within which the newsreel was being produced, the genre kept its importance as a decisive audiovisual mass medium by being an important tool in the development and shaping of politico-cultural public spheres up to the 1960s.

The main focus of the planned conference will lie on the analysis of the role of the newsreel as a medium for the formation of cultural identities in a variety of national contexts after 1945. Special attention is paid to newsreels that thematize cultural and artistic topics, respectively, which demonstrate strategies for the construction of a shared identity.
 

Material Meanings

Third Biannual Conference of the European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies (EAM)
7-9 September 2012
University of Kent, Canterbury, England

 

 

This conference investigates the avant-garde's reconfiguration of matter and materials in the quest to generate new meanings and effects.

 

Its particular focus will be the manner in which different artistic disciplines adopt strategies, theories and techniques from each other, and how they translate, transform and integrate conceptions and modes of expression from other sign systems.

 

 

Proposals are invited for contributions which deal with any of the following: the interference or conflict of artistic disciplines; the interaction of disciplines in artistic movements; the combination of media in single artworks or artistic practices; the treatment of sign as matter and matter as sign; the materiality of art and the art of materiality; art and material environment; the world as matter and meaning; text as thing, things as texts; the transfiguration of traditional or found materials; the material effectivity of the avant-garde; the interdependency of manifestos (meaning) and art (material); technology and the transformation of meaning; the incorporation of the foreign or extraneous.

 

 

We welcome contributions across all areas of avant-garde activity: art, literature, music, architecture, film, artistic and social movements, lifestyle, television, fashion, drama, performance, activism, design and technology. We especially welcome contributions which explore the combination of different media or practices within a single work or within a given environment.
The conference languages are English, French and German.

 

 

Proposals are welcome from individuals, and from panels of three or four, or exceptionally double panels of six or seven. We especially welcome panel proposals. We will prefer panels where members are drawn from different institutions, preferably across different disciplines, and especially across national boundaries.

 

 

Panel proposals should include the following information. Panels must not consist only of graduate students.

 

 

1. Title of panel and language of panel (English, French, German – one only)
2. Name, address and email contact of Panel Chair
3. A summary of the panel topic (300 words)

Colloque Avant-garde Paris

(English version follows)

Paris, le 29 juin 2011

Cher(e) collègue,

Il nous reste 12 semaines avant le colloque de Paris. Il est temps de regarder plus en détail l’organisation du colloque.

Veuillez trouver ci-joints deux fichiers. Le premier contient le programme provisoire du colloque ainsi que les résumés des communications. Il consiste en 42 interventions organisées en 2 sessions parallèles. Les deux conférences plénières sont situées au début et à fin du colloque. Un programme plus détaillé vous sera envoyé en septembre.

Une réunion de planning sera organisée la veille du colloque, le 22 Septembre. Tous les participants sont bienvenus à cette réunion dont l’objectif est de jeter les bases d’un programme de recherche  
international. Le deuxième fichier contient une esquisse qui servira de base aux discussions.

Le colloque aura lieu dans trois bâtiments différents, tous situés dans le quartier latin. L’Institut Finlandais de Paris est au 60, rue des écoles, près de la station de métro Cluny-La Sorbonne. L’Institut du monde anglophone est au 5, rue de l’école de médecine,  à 100 mètres de l’Institut Finlandais. La Maison de la recherche se trouve de l’autre côté du Panthéon, à 15 minutes à pied de l’Institut  
Finlandais.
 
Projet de recherche
 
Le temps réservé à chaque communication est de 30 minutes, dont environ 10 minutes devraient être réservées à la discussion (avec l’exception d’une double communication présentée par trois  
chercheurs). Les salles sont équipées d’un ordinateur et d’un projecteur. Si vous utilisez des powerpoint, nous vous prions de les sauvegarde dans le format .ppt (et non pas .ppx).

Le droit d’inscription de 30 euros (qui comprend le matériel, les pauses-café et un déjeuner) sera à payer par chèque ou en espèces à la registration.

Étant donné que Paris est la première destination mondiale de tourisme, nous vous conseillons de réserver les vols et l’hôtel à temps.

En attendant le plaisir de vous voir à Paris, veuillez agréer, cher collègue, l’expression de nos meilleurs sentiments.

Harri Veivo
Président du comité d’organisation


Paris June 28, 2011

Dear colleague,

The colloquium is only 12 weeks ahead of us. It is time to look more in detail at the organisation of the event.

Please find here attached two documents. The first one contains the provisional programme of the colloquium and the abstracts. It consists of 42 presentations divides in 2 parallel sessions. The plenary lectures are situated at the beginning and the end of the programme. A more detailed programme will be sent to you in September.

A planning meeting will be held on the eve of the colloquium, September 22, at 18.30. All participants are welcome to attend this meeting, which aims to lay the foundations for an international research program. The second document contains a draft that will serve as basis for discussions.

The colloquium will take place in three buildings, all situated in the quartier latin. The Institut Finlandais de Paris is at 60, rue des  
écoles, close to the Cluny-La Sorbonne metro station. The Institut du monde Anglophone is at 5, rue de l’école de médecine, just two blocks away from the Institut Finlandais. The Maison de la recherche is on the other side of the Panthéon, at a 15 minute walk from the Insitut Finlandais.

All the participants will dispose of 30 minutes for the presentation and discussion of their paper (with the exception of one double paper presented by three scholars). The rooms are equipped with computers and data projectors. If you plan to use powerpoint slides, we recommend you to save them as ppt-files (and not ppx).

The participation fee of 30 euros (covering colloquium material, coffee breaks and one lunch) is to be paid by cheque or in cash upon registration.

Given that Paris is the number 1 tourist destination in the World, we recommend you to make flight and hotel reservations in time. We are looking forward to meeting you in Paris in September.

With best regards,
Harri Veivo
Head of the organizing committee
