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.
Pending the official call papers, 2017, from CAA, ASHAHS will then support the proposal that best advances our programming and complements the outstanding sessions of recent years.
This call invites proposals related to all periods in Iberian and Ibero-American art history and particularly welcomes those topics fostering cross-cultural and interdisciplinary connections. Prospective session Chairs may wish to consult last year’s CAA guidelines before submitting a session proposal abstract and CV to me no later than Monday, September 7, 2015. Please keep in mind the CAA restriction on submissions from individuals who have chaired sessions in the previous two years.
As always, while we evaluate proposals from prospective chairs on their scholarly strengths, all other factors being equal, priority will be given to current ASHAHS members who have paid dues for this calendar year.
We look forward to reading your submissions and in the meantime, please send any questions to Kelly Watt firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline to propose a paper or presentation is Friday, May 8, 2015.
Propose a Paper or Presentation for the 2016 Annual Conference
The 2016 Call for Participation for the 104th Annual Conference, taking place February 3–6, 2016, in Washington, DC, describes many of next year’s programs sessions. CAA and the session chairs invite your participation: please follow the instructions in the booklet to submit a proposal for a paper or presentation. This publication also includes a call for Poster Session proposals and describes the Open Format Sessions.
Short call: This session investigates how the spectres of surrealism and Magical Realism haunt the production, circulation, and interpretation of contemporary art and visual culture from Latin America. Almost twenty years ago, Gerardo Mosquera’s “Beyond the Fantastic: Contemporary Art Criticism from Latin America” rejected the prevalent understanding of art and culture from Latin America as exotic, magical realist, fantastic and surreal. The edited volume critiqued these tropes as reductive and reflective of Western expectations of how art from Latin America should look like, which role should play in its immediate context, and the terms for its transnational circulation. However, after almost two decades of relative absence, in the last five years there has been a return of these two highly contested methodological frameworks. We invite papers that re-consider the continuities and ruptures between surrealism and Magical Realism in Latin America, while exploring how, and if, they inform contemporary artistic practices from the region. Long call: Please click here.
Please send a preliminary abstract (1-2 double spaced, typed pages), a Letter of Interest, and current CV to: Dr Andrés David Montenegro Rosero, University College London: email@example.com@mac.com
Deadline: 8 May 2015
