CBHA AWARD FOR PHD THESES IN ART HISTORY
.
"ART IN BRAZIL: SINGULARITIES AND CONNECTIONS"
..
As part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the Brazilian Committee of Art History (Comitê Brasileiro de História da Arte, CBHA), and in alignment with other scientific organizations in the country engaged in the endeavour to value the work undertaken in the academic sphere, we are pleased to launch an award designed to encourage relevant and high-quality research activity. We should recall that art history – a field that aims to investigate artistic and cultural output from different periods – draws on a vast historical, theoretical and methodological repertoire in conjunction with other areas of knowledge, helping develop transdisciplinary knowledge using a combination of scientific rigour and creative capacity. Art history is also linked to the recognition, appreciation and defence of the artistic and cultural heritage of humankind, both tangible and intangible.
.
The theme of the CBHA Award for PhD Theses in Art History this year is Art in Brazil: singularities and connections. The hope is that it serves to motivate researchers who, despite the great adversity faced in recent years, still engage in serious investigations at postgraduate programmes in Brazil and elsewhere, contributing to the admirable collective effort of the programmes and their coordinators, supervisors and co-supervisors, editors, examiners and readership.
.
Another goal of this award is to raise the profile of topics that have come into evidence in recent years through the historical and social demands manifested by artists and researchers, underlining the epistemological transformations underway and indicating new paths to be trodden by scholars from the area of art history.
.
As CBHA focuses on tracing out the routes that may be taken by future generations, appreciating the important legacy already built up and mindful of current interests, it hopes to attract the interest and participation of recent PhD graduates, whose theses will be analysed and assessed according to the criteria set forth in this call for applications.
