Call for proposals – Hypothèses

CALL FOR PROPOSALS – The Hypothèses team invite you to participate in the Hypothèses conference series call for papers for the 2022/2023 symposia calendar year.

Hypothèses is a lecture series focused on art history and museum studies, organized for graduate students from Quebec universities, with the aim of stimulating and disseminating emerging research in the discipline. The series acts as platform to support dialog and debates between researchers.

Two lectures are presented each month at a colloquium held usually in the fine Art Museum’s Salon des amis. If required by Public Health, a virtual adaptation will be offered on Zoom. We invite proposals for upcoming conference season reflecting upon an artistic corpus without any thematic or methodological restrictions. We accept proposals in French or English. Applications will be accepted from postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students, and master’s candidates. Additionally, applications will be accepted from graduates who have submitted their dissertations within the last academic year from the call for papers. 

Applications must be received by Wednesday, July 10, 2022 midnight to be considered. Instructions for the 20 minutes presentation can be found here :

Papers will be evaluated anonymously by an impartial committee composed of representatives from Montreal universities. Note that the choices are based on the originality and rigor of the proposals, but also the relevance of themes in relation to an annual program.
