34th World Congress of Art History
September 15th - 22nd 2016


The Chinese CIHA Committee will host the 34th CIHA World Congress of Art History in Beijing and invites art historians from all over the world to attend and discuss "Terms".
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 ways of seeing, describing, analyzing and classifying art works. The topics are divided into 21 sections. The sections should enable comparisons to be made between different viewpoints and methods. Each panel will compose a program reflecting the CIHA's commitment to the idea of diversity, which should allow talks on different genres, epochs and countries to be brought together.


The Call for Papers ends on June 30, 2015. Please submit the abstract of your paper directly to the chairs with copy to info@ciha2016.org
