The Historic Interiors Section of ICON is continuing its journey through the conservation and understanding of historic interiors with its third annual Cambridge Conference, The Country House in the 18th Century.
Building on the successful format of previous conferences, the focus will be a multi-discipline approach examining the architecture of 18th century country houses, technical and artistic developments and the role of the Grand Tour on decorative interiors and their furnishings, economic influences of the period and historical and current methods and costs of maintaining country houses and their contents.
We are announcing a call for papers from conservators, curators, architects, art historian and social historians. Please submit an abstract of 200 words to Christine Sitwell (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 1st February 2012.
