MAKING HISTORIES The Sixth International Insular Art Conference

The Sixth International Insular Art Conference
University of York
July 18-22, 2011


The art of the insular world has been the focus of specific study through the International Insular
Art Conference meetings for over 25 years. The result has been a body of scholarship that has
advanced our understanding of the material on many fronts. The forthcoming Conference aims
to continue this trend, by addressing the various ways in which the art, in all media, can be
understood, as well as the ways in which that understanding itself has been constructed.
‘Making Histories’ thus invites papers that consider the processes involved in ‘making art’ (in
the broadest sense) in the early medieval, insular, world, as well as those that consider the
historical legacy of the scholarship on that art.
Abstracts of 350 words should be submitted to Dr Jane Hawkes ( by 15
December, 2010.
