CfP: Lapis: The Journal of the Institute of Fine Arts

Lapis: The Journal of the Institute of Fine Arts seeks articles for its December 2019 issue.

Lapis is a peer-reviewed, open access journal of art history, architecture, and art conservation published by the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. Lapis is dedicated to scholarly articles on art history from all fields with an emphasis on publications from graduate students and early career scholars internationally. In considering art history as a trans-temporal and interdisciplinary practice tightly linked to material culture, Lapis strives to present studies that are broad in chronological, geographic, and methodological scope.

For its second issue, the editors are eager to receive a diverse range of topics and are especially interested in reviewing work on pre-modern or non-Western topics and technical studies of works of art that include an emphasis on visual analysis.

Articles between 4,000 and 5,000 words by graduate students and scholars within three years of graduation are welcomed.
