---------------------------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS 31st AAH Annual Conference Conception:Reception University of Bristol, 31 March - 2 April 2005 The Conference will seek to focus attention on the relationship between the creation of the artwork and its reception. More specifically, attention might be paid to the ways in which interpretation can, and arguably should, pay close attention to the specifics of creation. The title is expressly not meant to suggest the privileging of reception theory at the expense of other interpretative models. It is indeed hoped that the theme will generate suggestions for suggestions utilising the widest range of investigative methods for the analysis of an equally broad group of objects. The Association's concern to promote the study of chronologically and geographically diverse objects is echoed here, together with a desire to treatment of the work in the widest variety of media. The aim expressed by Robert S. Nelson in Critical Terms for Art History might stand here, with his past tense replaced by the future: 'we...seek explorations that will be more conceptual and not mere accountings of critical schools or approaches, and we ask authors to ground their theorizing in the interpretation of some work of art.'
