We are inviting the first round of submissions to the newly founded Belvedere Research Journal (BRJ), a peer-reviewed, open access e-journal. We seek articles that shed new light on the visual culture of the former Habsburg Empire and Central Europe broadly defined from the medieval period to the present day. We especially welcome contributions that situate Austrian art practices within the broader international context. Moreover, we are interested in innovative approaches to art history, such as the decentralization of established narratives or the investigation of transnational transfers that reveal the interconnected and cross-cultural character of the art world. Finally, the BRJ seeks contributions that draw attention to artists and agents whose activities have previously been overlooked, especially women. We support interdisciplinary research that introduces novel theoretical approaches by combining art history with methodologies from other disciplines, such as the digital humanities, social sciences and cultural economics among others.
Belvedere Research Journal
About the Journal
The Belvedere Research Journal is an international peer-reviewed, open access e-journal, which is published as a continuous issue throughout the year. The journal is thematically based on the Belvedere collection and devoted to research in Austrian art history in the widest historical and geographical sense. We seek work concerned with developments in the former Habsburg Empire and Central Europe broadly defined from the medieval period to the present day. We are especially interested in articles focusing on situating Austrian art practices within the international context; in innovative art-historical tendencies, including the decentralization of established narratives or the investigation of transnational transfers; and contributions that draw attention to artists and agents whose activities have previously been overlooked. The BRJ accepts article submissions on a rolling basis. We seek to share knowledge and relevant materials with an international audience of scholars, curators, art professionals, students, and enthusiasts. Each issue will typically include seven articles and three discoveries. The language of publication is English.
