CFP: Society of Contemporary Art Historians, CAA2023

Open Call for SCAH-Sponsored Panel at CAA; due April 22 by 11:59pm

The Society of Contemporary Art Historians invites proposals for either a panel accepting calls for papers or a fully-formed panel for the 2023 College Art Association conference, which will be held in New York February 15–18, 2023. As an affiliated society, we are guaranteed a panel at the annual conference. Please submit a 250-word panel proposal (or a 250-word proposal accompanied by three, 250-word paper proposals) by April 22.

Proposals can address any topic in contemporary art (understood as broadly as the convener would like). See past SCAH panels here: https://scahweb.org/Annual-Panel. We encourage diverse topics that span various geographical areas or distinct decades. Moreover, possible appeal to art workers of various stripes—not solely academic art historians—will be viewed favorably. Proposers of panels should plan to be chairs and could additionally be presenters.

The CAA conference is slated to be held in-person (but seems willing to entertain the possibility of online content). We will consider proposals related to either format (and recognize that the costs of spending a weekend in New York City could be prohibitive); please specify which format you plan for your panel. Per the CAA, this preference will be “non-binding” (or, based on SCAH’s precedents, this might be a reason to run a panel outside of the official constrains once again)

The executive board of SCAH will vote on proposals received by the April 22 deadline.
