American Society for Hispanic Art Historical Studies at College Art Association 2018: Call for session proposals

American Society for Hispanic Art Historical Studies
(ASHAHS)

If you have thought about chairing a panel at the annual meeting of the College Art Association, Los Angeles, 21-24 February 2018, please consider submitting a proposal for ASHAHS sponsorship. As an affiliated society, ASHAHS is able to sponsor one ninety-minute session at this conference.

We seek session proposals that represent the vibrant diversity found within Iberian and Ibero-American art history and welcome those panel topics that will stimulate both broad interest and robust discussion.

Guidelines for proposals from affiliated societies may be found here, including CAA’s requirements concerning membership.

If you would like a panel to be considered for ASHAHS sponsorship, please submit your proposal to Carmen Ripollés or Kelly Watt.  Deadline: 7 April 2017.

Proposals will be evaluated on their scholarly strengths and, all other factors being equal, priority will be given to current ASHAHS members who have paid dues this calendar year. Our goal is to promptly notify the chair(s) of the proposal selected for ASHAHS sponsorship well in advance of CAA’s deadline for session and individual proposals.
