Overview of Current Research on 19th-century Art History
Deadline: 31 August 2016
The European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art is a platform that brings together scholars, museum professionals and graduate students whose research focuses on European art of the long nineteenth century. ESNA aims to provide a forum to promote the exchange of ideas in this field, to support and encourage graduate research, and to enhance networking opportunities for participants. In this context ESNA’s steering committee aspires to update the overview of research projects.
In order to put together an updated inventory of ongoing art-historical research into the nineteenth century, we invite ESNA members to send an email to email@example.com no later than 31 August. We welcome both academic research and museum-based research projects of substantial duration. Moreover, we now welcome non-Dutch ESNA members to contribute information about their research as well. Please mention (in English) name(s) and affiliation(s) of the researcher(s), title of the project, and probable/expected date of publication or duration of the project. The update will be published in September.

City of Sin: Some thoughts on the 2016 ESNA Conference
Inspired by Baudelaire’s 1846 appeal to artists to open their eyes to the shadow side of the modern metropolis, this year’s ESNA conference, City of Sin: Representing the Urban Underbelly in the Nineteenth Century focused on the more subversive subjects of nineteenth-century city life. An inspiring group of art historians and students assembled at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam to discuss the depiction of topics such as prostitution, criminality and addiction in nineteenth-century art. Although this may sound a bit peculiar, these topics actually present fundamental issues of nineteenth-century urban culture.
The European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art (ESNA) is a platform formed under the auspices of the Dutch Postgraduate School for Art History (Onderzoekschool Kunstgeschiedenis). ESNA was founded by a group of scholars, graduate students and museum professionals based in the Netherlands whose research focuses on European art of the long nineteenth century. ESNA’s aim is to provide a forum to promote the exchange of ideas in this field, to support and encourage graduate research, and to enhance networking opportunities for participants. ESNA seeks to contribute to, and foster debate on, nineteenth-century art through the organization of an annual symposium, workshops, excursions, the invitation of visiting speakers, and the co-ordination with other organizations and groups devoted to the study of the nineteenth century. Although originating in the Low Countries, ESNA aims to create a broad international network for the advancement of research into all aspects of nineteenth-century European art.
