Annual Conference

History of Annual Meetings and Conferences

Rebecca Rushfield, an independent conservator based in New York and a member of CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts, compiled the following list of CAA meetings and conferences from 1911 to the present.

In her chapter in The Eye, the Hand, the Mind, “Uniting the Arts and the Academy,” Julia A. Sienkewicz writes that the Annual Conference “plays an ongoing role in reinforcing and redirecting the identity of the College Art Association. In many ways it is the heart of the organization. For young scholars, reference to the conference evokes anxious memories of job interviews or first presentations. For senior scholars, it means yearly reunions with friends, and a barrage of paper sessions, interviews, and meetings.”

CAA will periodically post PDFs of session information—names of speakers and sessions, titles of papers, and the like—from 1937 to 2005 in spring and summer 2012. When new research uncovers additional details, they will be added to the history. Annual Conference websites from 2006 to 2012 are still online.
