Landscape and seascape have been abiding interests in the history of American art, inspiring iconic national imagery and stimulating significant bodies of literature. Many studies have examined how landscape and marine painting encode American culture, politics, and philosophy, often promoting a monolithic notion of American identity. As histories of American art become more culturally and geographically expansive, taking into consideration the larger context of the Western Hemisphere and the transatlantic world, how can scholars reassess images of land and sea?
Featuring papers by both established and emerging scholars, this conference explores the ways in which the reinterpretation of American landscape and marine art across media can challenge, subvert, and transform traditional conceptions of American identity.
Keynote speaker: Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser, the Alice Pratt Brown Curator of American Painting and Sculpture in The Metropolitan Museum of Art's American Wing
