The Art of Revolutions

The tumult and transformations resulting from the Age of Revolutions (1770s to 1840s) created a transatlantic body of art and material culture that reflected and inspired new ideas and actions. "The Art of Revolutions," cosponsored by the APS, Museum of the American Revolution, and Philadelphia Museum of Art, explores the role of imagery in influencing and giving meaning to the political revolutions that defined the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

The symposium covers the American Revolution, French Revolution, Circum-Caribbean Revolutions, and the Revolutions of 1848. We hope the chronological scope and transatlantic breadth of the conference will stimulate an interdisciplinary dialogue that crosses traditional geographic barriers and transcends the limitations of strict periodization.

Registration is now open and free of charge. "The Art of Revolutions" will be held October 2628, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA.
