CfP: Postgraduate Students for Research in the Arts Seminar in Paris

We are pleased to announce that the seminar “Recherche dans les arts” (“Research in the arts”), which is part of the activities organised by the Centre de Recherches dans les Arts et les Langages (CRAL – EHESS, Paris) will be held for it’s eight consecutive year.

For this reason, we invite postgraduate students to submit their presentation proposals for the year 2014-2015.

This seminar was created to encourage exchanges between students from different institutions whose research focuses on the arts in their most varied forms. It encourages an interdisciplinary reflection on artistic practices while seeking to find common ground in research.

Each session will include two presentations lasting up to thirty minutes followed by a debate of an equivalent duration, which will be guided by one discussant each. The participants may deal with their subjects (as a whole or a specific problem), the difficulties they encounter, the methods they use and the results obtained during their research.

Proposals for papers must include: the title, the summary of the intervention (10 lines maximum), the University affiliation and the name of the research director. We accept proposals in both French and English. Please send them by e-mail by Tuesday, September 30th 2014, to the following address:

The seminar will take place from November 2014 until June 2015, every first Monday of the month from 13:00 to 15:00 at 96 Bd Raspail, 75006, Paris.
