2012 Arts in Society Conference, Art and Design Academy, Liverpool, UK, 23-25 July - Call for Papers

23-25 July 2012
Art and Design Academy, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK

Art and Design Academy announces the Call-for-Papers for the Seventh International Conference on the Arts in Society. The conference and its companion journal provide a scholarly platform for discussions of the arts and art practices, enabling an interdisciplinary conversation on the role of the arts in society. They are intended as a place for critical engagement, examination and experimentation of ideas that connect the arts to their contexts in the world - in studios and classrooms, in galleries and museums, on stage, on the streets and in communities.

In addition to an impressive line-up of international plenary speakers, the conference will also include paper presentations, roundtable discussions, workshop and interactive presentations, poster or exhibit sessions, and colloquia submitted by practitioners, teachers and researchers. Please refer to the Call-for-Papers for proposal submission guidelines and descriptions of sessions. Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of the Arts in Society. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in this fully refereed academic journal.

The host city of Liverpool celebrated its 800th birthday in 2007 and, throughout its history, has stood at the center of many of the world's trades, inventions, and cultural innovations. As a world port city, Liverpool boasts a diverse population, drawing from its many peoples, cultures, and religions, and in celebration of this history, Liverpool was named a European Capital of Culture in 2008.
