Call for Papers

In conjunction with the 10th International Conference of the European Society for Periodical Research (ESPRit), entitled Periodicals beyond Hierarchies: Challenging Geopolitical and Social “Centres” and “Peripheries” through the Press (Budapest, 8–9 September 2022, see the corresponding CfP), a hybrid postgraduate workshop will be held on 7 September 2022. We seek applications from graduate students working on any topic with regard to periodicals from any historical period, geographical origin, and cultural context. The workshop is open to postgraduate students working in any discipline in the humanities and social sciences and using any methodology or approach. Priority will be given to advanced doctoral students, but applications by graduate students at any stage of preparation of their dissertation will also be considered. Personalised feedback will be offered by a committee comprising ESPRit members and members of the Museum of Fine Arts – Central European Research Institute for Art History (KEMKI) – Artpool Art Research Center and the Kassák Museum. Participants of the workshop will have their conference fee waived. Further funding for travel expenses and accommodation will be taken into consideration, under request.

To apply, please send:

  • a 500-word abstract of the thesis to be presented. Workshop presentations last generally 10 minutes. In order for the Workshop to be useful to all participants what should be stressed is specific methodological points pertaining to periodical studies, rather than just case studies. These can of course be an outcome of the PhD candidate’s research area or PhD subject.
  • a short CV (150 words) including name, institutional affiliation, and year of PhD. The academic CV should include the candidate’s studies, interests, and possible distinctions and publications.

Proposals should be received by the organisers no later than 28 February 2022.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Central European Research Institute for Art History, Budapest!
