Registration is now open for the conference ‘In and Out of American Art: Between Provincialism and Transnationalism 1940-1980’ (University of St Andrews, 27th and 28th October).

This international conference addresses how categories such as the ‘provincial’, the ‘regional’, and the ‘international’ have operated in relation to American art during the post-war period, as well as how recent developments in art history might enable us to rethink how artists negotiated these terms at the time.

The conference features papers by: Miguel de Baca (Lake Forest College / University of Oxford); James Boaden (University of York); Lucy Bradnock (University of Nottingham); Anthony Gardner (University of Oxford); Larne Abse Gogarty (Humboldt Universität, Berlin); Charles Green (University of Melbourne); Béatrice Joyeux-Prunel (École Normale Supérieure); Ed Krčma (University of East Anglia); David Peters Corbett (Courtauld Institute of Art); Moran Sheleg (University College London); Alex J. Taylor (University of Pittsburgh); Amy Tobin (University of Cambridge); Leon Wainwright (Open University); ​and Molly Warnock (Johns Hopkins University).
