CFP: Extended Deadline for Proposals for AHAA-sponsored session @ CAA 2014

DEADLINE REMINDER: Proposals for the AHAA-sponsored scholarly session at CAA 2014 are due April 1. Because April 1 is Sunday, proposals will be accepted through Monday, April 2.

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.

AHAA-sponsored scholarly sessions are similar to the scholarly sessions generally held at CAA, although sometimes more topical issues are addressed. Scholarly session proposals should be sent by email to Katherine Smith, AHAA Sessions Coordinator (kasmith at Successful chairs will be notified by June 1, 2012.

AHAA seeks to include new voices, and younger scholars are encouraged to make submissions. Chairs of AHAA-sponsored sessions must be current members of both 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
