Proposals for panel, poster and open forum sessions for the CAA Conference 2011 in New York City

The Feminist Art Project and the Institute for Women and Art would like to invite College Art Association members to submit proposals for panel, poster and open forum sessions for the CAA Conference 2011 in New York City. We encourage you to propose sessions that address the theme of: Feminism, Diversity and Globalism. That theme is one of several selected by CAA for their Centennial celebration . It was originally proposed by a coalition of groups including ArtTable, The Feminist Art Project, and Women's Caucus for Art , along with several CAA committees. The Feminist Art Project will be presenting TFAP@CAA, an extraordinary day of feminist art panels and performances on Saturday, February 12 organized by Johanna Burton and Julia Bryan-Wilson.
Thank you,
Ferris Olin and Judith Brodsky
Directors, Institute for Women and Art

Beginning June 26, individual CAA members may submit a session proposal for the centennial Annual Conference, taking place February 12, 2011, in New York. Proposals should cover the breadth of current thought and research in art, art and architectural history, theory and criticism, pedagogical issues, museum and curatorial practice, conservation, and developments in technology.

The Annual Conference Committee welcomes session proposals that include the work of established artists and scholars, along with that of younger scholars, emerging and mid-career artists, and graduate students. Particularly welcome are those sessions that highlight interdisciplinary work. Artists are especially encouraged to propose sessions appropriate to dialogue and information exchange relevant to artists.

Session proposals are only taken online; paper forms and postal mailings are not accepted. To set up an account, please email Lauren Stark, CAA manager of programs, who will register your email address and provide you with a password.
