What underrepresented area of research in ethnic and cultural art history do you want to investigate and why?
3. Proposed Schedule
The EAHR Research Residency Diversifying Academia at Concordia: EAHR Research Residency, asks the resident to respond to the underrepresentation of areas of ethnic minority art history research in the sources available in the Concordia University Libraries. This residency is a self-directed research program that provides residents the opportunity to work independently in the library with the guidance of John Latour (Teaching & Research Librarian - Fine Arts). As part of EAHR’s mandate, the residency promotes critical engagement with issues of ethnic and cultural representation within the visual arts in Canada. We acknowledge the role academia plays in the representation of ethnic and cultural minority art histories; therefore we, encourage our art historians-in-residence to make a scholarly commitment to the investigation of underrepresented areas in the history of art and visual culture through a critical engagement with the available sources at the Concordia Libraries.
Each resident will be responsible for completing an extensive bibliography on a proposed underrepresented or marginalized area of ethnic and/or cultural art history research and use a $500 book fund to recommend new sources on the proposed topic to be integrated into the Concordia Libraries. Additionally, the research-resident will be responsible for writing an article (length can vary) justifying their research findings and developing a way to visualize and communicate the research and acquisition of new library sources in the Webster library as a way of informing the student body of this intervention.
We welcome art history students (major or minor) from diverse backgrounds who have an interest in making visible a marginalized cultural history of art and visual culture in Montreal.
The goals of the research residency, with respect to EAHR’s mandate, would be:
