The deadline of our Call for Papers for the forthcoming Eighth Graduate Workshop of the Russian Art & Culture Group is today! Use this last chance for submitting your proposal!

Since our workshop with the topic The Problem of Religious Art in Modernity. Uses and Abuses of the Icon in Russia is scheduled for September 23rd to 25th (exact dates depend on the amount of submissions), we are still hoping that we will be able to meet you all in person – despite the current situation. We will definitely keep you posted about any changes which might need to be made.

We will hopefully gather in the rooms of the Internationales Kolleg Morphomata at Cologne University. The discussions of international junior and senior scholars will be joined by our keynote speaker, Professor George Pattison from Glasgow.

You will find all the necessary information in the Call’s pdf. However, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers of this workshop, Clemena Antonova and Ludmila Piters-Hofmann, using the email address above.

We are looking forward for your submissions!
