Voting phase begins, Photography Contest still open until Jan. 17, 2013

Captain’s  Logbook.

We have been hit more than four thousand times since my last entry, on December 21st, the day the photography contest was launched. The vessel seems to resist, and the mates are keeping their spirits up.

Before this contest runs out of the rudder, we will launch the second phase, starting this midnight. You can now vote for all photographs posted on the Picturk Platform, and have your friends vote for your image, of course. If you have not had a chance to do so, you may still upload your very own interpretation of the “Pirates and Sea Dogs” Theme, but be aware that the longer you wait, the less people can vote for you.

Anyways, the winner of the Peoples’ Choice Award will be the one with the most “Likes”, on the January 17, at 23:59h Central European Time.
The prize, as you know, is fame and glory, as well as a gift voucher from Premier Ship Models which will make you a ship owner over-night!

On January 18 and 19, the students of the The European Master in Fine Art Photography will enjoy their workshop with editor and photographer Andreas Müller-Pohle and vote the other four prizes: a workshop with Paul Kranzler, a portfolio review participation fee from PhotoIreland and two-year subscriptions to European Photography and Camera Austria magazines.

The results will be made public on January 21, after personally contacting with the lucky winners.

So, get your friends aboard and tell them to vote for you!


Good Luck from the Captain.

To celebrate our soon to reach 100.000 hits on board, we invite all sailors to get aboard our Curator Ship Photography Contest and show us their best photograph of “Pirates & Sea Dogs”. Surprise us, as we have seen many of these colourful creatures on our journeys.

The deadline is 10 January 2013 and you can only upload one image, but don’t worry, you can always go back and make changes to it until the contest is closed!

seadog definition

The Jury consists of the students of the European Master of Fine Art Photography in Madrid, guided by the renowned photographer and publisher Andreas Müller-Pohle.

The prizes include a three-day workshop with Paul Kranzler at the IED Madrid, a two years subscription to European Photography magazine (including shipment anywhere on this planet), and a free entry to the PhotoIreland Festival Portfolio Reviews, in July 2013, in Dublin.

The people’s choice prize of the Curator Ship Photography Contest is a gift voucher from Premiership Models, which will give you the opportunity to become a shipowner, like myself.

Two-year postdoctoral position in Spatial Art History, Paris. Deadline: Jan 7, 2013

ARTL@S Postdoctoral Fellowship

“Spatial art history”
École normale supérieure, Paris,
Application deadline: Jan 7, 2013

September 1, 2013 to August 31, 2015
Yearly appointment: Euro 30.000

2 years, 38 hrs a week

Announcement
The École normale supérieure (Paris), the LabEx TransferS, and ARTL@S
(a digital humanities project sponsored by the Agence Nationale pour la
Recherche) are pleased to announce a two-year postdoctoral position in
the field of Spatial Art History. The postdoctoral fellow will
participate in the activities of ARTL@S (www.artlas.ens.fr) while
developing an independent research project pertaining to related
questions in this field. Through his or her involvement within the
international and transdisciplinary ARTL@S team, the fellow will
acquire valuable experience, gain expertise, and develop his or her
academic network, thereby increasing potential career prospects within
the international academic community.

Qualifications
The successful candidate will have a PhD in art history or in a related
field (i.e. History, Geography, Sociology, etc…), received no earlier
than 2008, and will specialize in issues related to geography of art,
global art history, or cultural heritage in a transnational
perspective. He or she may work on any region or period between the
18th and the 21st centuries; however, preference will be given to
non-Western European and non-North-American projects, and/or world-art
historical or global art-historical projects. Candidates are invited to
propose research projects that can benefit from the tools ARTL@S has
developed (quantitative and serial analysis, databases, geographical
information systems (GIS), digital cartography). The right candidate
will also demonstrate a keen interest in digital humanities, especially
in databases and cartography.
While previous experience in these fields, along with web development
and GIS, is not a prerequisite, basic knowledge and a willingness to
acquire expertise in those areas is essential. The postdoctoral fellow
will indeed have to work with the ARTL@S’ database, GIS interface and
website.
Likewise, fluency in French is not required, but some basic knowledge
and a commitment to learn French and become fluent while living in
Paris is. Intensive courses can be taken by the successful candidate at
École normale supérieure for free.

Background
ARTL@S is a group of young scholars exploring questions about the
challenges of Global Art History with spatial and transnational
approach, and digital methods. We are part of Labex TransferS
(www.transfers.ens.fr ), a multi-departmental research group whose
members are fully engaged in original scholarship on cultural
circulations. ARTL@S and Labex Transfers are linked to the École
Normale Supérieure (www.ens.fr), a “grande école” with a long and
distinguished tradition of excellence in research and teaching.
ARTL@S’ goal is to produce a spatial history of literature and the
arts. Our research is based on a transnational geographic method and a
digital approach. We aim to enlarge the traditional understanding of
the history of art and of literature by adopting rigorous
transnational, serial, quantitative and cartographic procedures. This
international, interdisciplinary, and collective perspective tends to
contribute to a “Global Art History”, in a way that transcends the
traditional form of collected monographs on individual areas. ARTL@S
also endeavors to share, to compare and to enhance databases as well as
to process collective data with effective digital tools.

ARTL@S’ activities and publications are structured around five axes:
• A history of the geographies of art and literature in modern
metropolitan areas (particularly in Paris from the 19th through the
21st centuries), analyzing the location of various artistic activities,
their spatial evolutions, and their relationship to other specific
cartographies (social, economic, etc.)
• A history of artistic circulations since the beginning of the modern
era
• A history of translation (especially of literature and writings on
art) since the beginning of the modern era
• A transnational history of cultural heritage (18th-20th centuries)
• A history of the uses of cartography in art

For more information, consult our detailed website at: http://www.artlas.ens.fr
Responsibilities
• Participate in the Academic committee the bi-monthly ARTL@S workshop
• Organize the activities for one of the project axes in close
cooperation with its coordinator
• Assist with the publication of the results on ARTL@S’ website
• Organize and supervise the publication of an issue of the semi-annual
ARTL@S Bulletin on a topic of his or her choice
• Collaborate on the organization of June 2015 conclusive conference,
both from a academic and a logistic point of view

Application Procedures
Completed applications are due on January 7th, 2013, for a preliminary
overview at the Selection Committee’s meeting.

Applicants are asked to submit:
• A cover letter, in English, in which the candidates express their
interest in ARTL@S and their expertise in the practice of a spatial
history of arts, Global art history, the history of international
artistic relationships and cultural exchanges, or in quantitative and
cartographic art history.
• An abstract of their doctoral dissertation (maximum two pages
double-spaced)
• A project proposal in which they describe their research project
(maximum five pages double-spaced)
• A CV with a list of publications
• A writing sample
• The completed application form (see below)
• Two letters of recommendation.

Please send the material to:
