CIHA 2012 in Nuremberg 33rd Congress of the International Committee of the History of Art July 15th-20th 2012 The Challenge of the ObjectDie Herausforderung des Objekts From July 15 to 20, 2012 the Germanisches Nationalmuseum is hosting the 33rd Congress of the International Committee of the History of Art in Nuremberg and invites art historians from all over the world to attend and discuss "The Challenge of the Object". The object and how it is perceived in art history is a question that is currently very highly charged, the result of increasing globalization and digitalization. Art and cultural historians from all over the world, from a vast cross-section of disciplines and fields of professional interest are called upon to discuss together the role and the theory of the object in art history. The topics are divided into 21 sections with up to 20 talks each. The sections should enable a comparison to be made between the different viewpoints and methods. For that reason they are categorized according to how their questions on the object in art history are formulated. This should allow talks on different genres, epochs and countries to be brought together. The congress will be rounded off with an extensive supporting program with excursions, for example to Documenta in Kassel, and a wide-ranging program for young academics. At the same time the Germanisches Nationalmuseum will be presenting the important special exhibition on "The Early Dürer". The Call for Papers ends on April 30, 2011. From November 2011, registration for participation without a presentation is also possible. Detailed descriptions of the individual sections as well as information on the congress and the Call for Papers can be found under CIHA 2012 c/o GERMANISCHES NATIONALMUSEUM Kornmarkt 1, 90402 Nürnberg Telefax: 0049-(0)911-1331-210Internet: Dr. Petra Krutisch  Telefon: 0049-(0)911-1331-184Dr. des.
