Association of Historians of American Art 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.
Scholarly sessions are similar to the scholarly sessions generally held at CAA, although sometimes more topical issues are addressed. Scholarly session proposals for the 2015 CAA Conference in New York were due April 15, 2013.
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.
