HNA CONFERENCE 2022
Amsterdam and The Hague, The Netherlands
2-4 June 2022
In preparation of the HNA conference 2-4 June 2022, organized by the University of Amsterdam and the RKD – Netherlands Institute for Art History, the program committee invites HNA members to submit proposals for a Pecha Kucha session for students and emerging professionals, sponsored by the Center for Netherlandish Art. Please submit your proposal to the session chair Christopher Atkins, not the program committee. Please note that participants may present only one paper at the conference.
As part of the Pecha Kucha format (see www.pechakucha.org) presentations should be max. 6 minutes 40 seconds long. Each presentation should be accompanied by 20 slides projected for 20 seconds each. Proposals should present new, rather than published research and reflect the current state of scholarship. Please send proposals of max. 300 words, along with a single-paged curriculum vitae, to the session chair (email@example.com).
Deadline: 1 May 2021. Applicants will be notified by the session chair no later than 1 June 2021.
All speakers should be HNA members at the time of the conference and should be prepared to cover their own costs for attendance.

In his groundbreaking work, Michael Montias explored the related economic concepts of product innovation and process innovation as applied to seventeenth-century Dutch landscape paintings. As Montias defined the terms, “product innovations generate either totally new products or products whose characteristics depart significantly from those known in the past. Process innovations lower the costs or otherwise improve the technology of making products that were already available or whose characteristics are essentially similar.”
Following these formulations, this session welcomes proposals that address artistic innovation in early modern northern Europe and/or projects that are rooted in innovative methodologies or means of dissemination. In what ways were individual artists or art projects innovative? Were artists self-consciously interested in innovation? Was innovation tied exclusively to the market, as Montias posed it? These and related questions are especially worthy of consideration within the context of scientific explorations in the period that are commonly perceived of as “advances.” Alternatively, submissions are welcomed that showcase new methods of interdisciplinary research and/or utilize digital technologies to advance understanding and share results in alternative formats. This session is open to all specializations incorporated within HNA.
The succinct, dynamic format of this session is designed to allow for a broad range of presentations and ample time for participation and discussion.
