How to Submit a Sharp Proposal for CAA 2018

posted by CAA — Apr 07, 2017

We are enjoying spring break as much as you are, but we also know that CAA has upcoming deadlines for proposing a session or paper for the 106th Annual Conference in Los Angeles, February 21–24, 2018.

In this video, Hunter O’Hanian, executive director of CAA, and Tiffany Dugan, director of programs, discuss what makes a great Conference proposal. We think your submission should contain clear writing, and your idea should be thoughtful. We want you to be accurate and complete when using the submission portal also.

The Annual Conference Committee, comprised of regional representatives, members of the Board, and CAA members at large, are in search of proposals that reflect the breadth and variety of our discipline and field, and demonstrate the expertise and curiosity of our membership also. Especially welcome are proposals from artists and on subjects in art before 1800.

The deadlines to propose a session or paper for the 2018 Annual Conference in Los Angeles are April 17 and April 24, 2017. Full details are available on the submissions website.
