The Dutch Postgraduate School for Art History (OSK) will offer the PhD seminar "Paradigms in Art- and Architectural History" this year on the 17th of November and the 1st of December 2014. The seminar will chaired by prof.dr. Kitty Zijlmans (professor of  Contemporary Art History and Theory, Leiden University) and dr. Freek Schmidt (assistant professor History and Theory of Architecture, VU University Amsterdam).

Particularly designed for PhD-students in Art and Architectural History, the course will examine and discuss the existence of selections and structures in art and architectural historical research. The main question under examination will be: how does one define his/her field of research? And which rationales constitute that demarcation?  

From this starting point, the two-day course will provide an in-depth discussion of art historical methodologies, approached from current status quaestionis. The course is suitable for the structuring of any art historical PhD-thesis. Participants are asked to prepare and contribute to a short bibliography, to participate in the discussions and to give a short presentation of their research on the second day, based on the main question of the course and the presentations by the professors on the first day. 


All discussions and presentations will be in English.


The first day will consist of lectures by the professors and discussion of literature. On the second day, participants are required to give a 10 minute presentation of their own research, giving special attention to aspects of arrangement, demarcation and disciplinary limits. Of course the presentations will be discussed en groupe.



Please apply before September 15th:
