Representation and Show: Studies in Nineteenth-Century Art


The second volume of the Shida Studies in Art History, edited by the Graduate Institute of Art History of the National Taiwan Normal University, will be dedicated to the topic “Representation and Show: Studies in Nineteenth-Century Art.”

Shida Studies in Art History is a scholarly, peer-reviewed series on art and architecture in the East and West. For the second volume, we welcome original research on nineteenth-century art and invite scholars to submit their contributions.


As a result of the political upheaval in the aftermath of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars, profound social and economic changes transformed the views on society. In the fields of culture and aesthetics, the thematic spectrum of artistic expression significantly widened. Society in all its facets became an object of creative thought, and wide-ranging approaches to representation were explored. In the field of visual culture, these new circumstances led to a paradigm shift. With growing detachment from old conditions and functions, artistic creativity became increasingly self-contained. Museums and exhibitions become the most significant platforms and the ultimate podiums, where works of art could be effectively displayed. Nevertheless, the old categories continued to persist. Progressive currents and backward-oriented art existed side by side, generating frictions and stimulating creativity.

The present volume of Shida Studies in Art History aims to publish contributions on the entire spectrum of nineteenth-century art, with special regard to changes of attitude and breaks with continuity.


Deadline for submission: June 30, 2012.


Articles of approximately 7,000 words and a brief academic CV (or indication of personal website) should be sent to Prof. Shai-Shu Tzeng athoart@deps.ntnu.edu.tw by June 11, 2012.

Editors reserve the right to reject articles that do not meet editorial standards.
