Tenth Conference of Iconographic Studies - Marian Iconography

The conference seeks to explore and discuss recent development in the dialogue between theology, art history, philosophy and cultural theory concerning the iconography of Mary in Eastern and Western art. We welcome academic papers that will approach this subject in an interdisciplinary and methodologically diverse way. The themes and subjects can include the following: 

  • early representations of Mary
  • images of intercession and authority
  • devotional iconography
  • Mary Mother of God
  • Virgin as queen
  • Mary as Ecclesia
  • Mary and Eve
  • Life of the Virgin
  • post-Tridentine iconography
  • hermeneutical and phenomenological aspects of Mary

Paper proposals should be submitted electronically to cis@ffri.hr
Deadline: March 30, 2016
Invitations to participate will be sent out by email before April 15, 2016

There is NO registration fee

Administration and organizational costs, working materials, lunch and coffee breaks during conference as well as all organized visits are covered by the organizers.
All presented papers will be published in the thematic issue of the IKON journal in May 2017.
