"The Art of Revolutions," October 26-28, 2017

Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]

October 26-28, 2017
American Philosophical Society
Philadelphia, PA

The tumult and transformations resulting from the Age of Revolutions (1770s-1840s) created a trans-Atlantic body of art and material culture that reflected and inspired new ideas and actions. "The Art of Revolutions", co-sponsored by the American Philosophical Society, Museum of the American Revolution, and Philadelphia Museum of Art, explores the role of imagery in influencing and giving meaning to the political revolutions that defined the late-18th and early-19th centuries.

The symposium covers the American Revolution, French Revolution, Circum-Caribbean Revolutions, and the Revolutions of 1848. We hope the chronological scope and transatlantic breadth of the conference will stimulate an interdisciplinary dialogue that crosses traditional geographic barriers and transcends the limitations of strict periodization.

Registration is now open and free of charge. "The Art of Revolutions" will be held from October 26-28, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA.
