AHAA Call for Session Proposals, CAA 2014 and 2015
As an affiliated society of CAA, AHAA (Association of Historians of American Art) sponsors two sessions at the CAA annual conference: a one-and-a-half-hour professional session and a two-and-a-half-hour scholarly session.
Professional sessions are more topical than art history sessions and can address teaching and curatorial issues, including pedagogical methods, deaccessioning, exhibitions, patronage, auctions, and publishing. Professional session proposals for the 2014 CAA Conference in Chicago are due March 15, 2013, and should be sent by email to Katherine Smith, AHAA Sessions Coordinator, at email@example.com. Successful chairs will be notified by April 1, 2013.Â
AHAA seeks to include new voices, and younger scholars are encouraged to make submissions. Chairs of AHAA-sponsored sessions must be current members of AHAA and CAA. Proposals should include a title for, and short description of, the session along with the proposer's c.v. and a statement of expertise on the topic or area proposed. For examples of appropriate topics, see the list of past AHAA-sponsored CAA sessions at ahaaonline.org.
