Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We hope you had a restful and productive summer and we wish you the very best for the fall term.
To give a bright start to the new academic year, why not join EPCAF on Academia?
Over the past years, many of you have told me that you would like to know who else is in Epcaf, on what they are working, and be able to access their writings. Instead of creating a directory that we would have to maintain and update regularly, we decided to use Academia and created a “European Postwar and Contemporary Art” research interest: https://www.academia.edu/People/European_Postwar_and_Contemporary_Art
We realize that not every EPCAF member is on Academia and that Academia has its problems, but for those of us who are already using Academia, we will just need to follow that research interest and use it as a keyword when we post papers. It is a simple but efficient way to connect with other scholars who share our interests.
And remember you can use EPCAF new Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/EPCAF-European-Postwar-Contemporary-Art-Forum-1123779561006526/?fref=photo to share relevant news and information, and do not hesitate to send me any cfp or announcement you would like to see included in our monthly Circulaire.
Below you will find our usual list of announcements.
