Our very busy September at CAA rolls on. Earlier this month we launched CAA Connect, our new digital discussion and resource library platform. This week, we open registration for the 2017 Annual Conference in New York, February 15–18, 2017 at the New York Hilton Midtown. With the opening of registration we also launch myCAA, a new campaign aimed at making CAA the best organization for its members. MyCAA is designed to encourage participation in and ownership of CAA. You will hear more about myCAA in the coming months, but contributing to the myCAA discussion community on CAA Connect is a great start! There is also an Annual Conference discussion community that will help us build a better conference with your feedback.

For the 2017 Annual Conference we kept registration rates the same as the 2016 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. and we managed to secure the lowest hotel rates for New York City since 2011. This is all part of our effort to create an Annual Conference our members will return to year after year. Single session tickets are also now at the lowest rate since 2001.

Early and online registration is available through December 19, 2016.

The 2017 Annual Conference will have more sessions than ever, an astounding 270-plus, due to the changes we made to the conference structure last year. We are thrilled to welcome two leading scholars as our Convocation Speaker and our Distinguished Scholar for 2017.

Convocation Keynote Speaker

Mary Miller, Sterling Professor of History of Art, and recently appointed the senior director of the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University

Distinguished Scholar

Kaja Silverman, Katherine Stein Sachs CW’69 and Keith L. Sachs W’67 Professor of Art History at the University of Pennsylvania 

Also new for the 2017 Annual Conference:

  • Opening Night Reception will be free and open to all attendees with a cash bar
  • Debut of Saturday Symposia, featuring a day-long series of panels on specific subjects important to the membership. The topics for the 2017 conference include museums; the design field; international art history; and interventions in the future of art history
  • Free and Public Noon Forums with leaders and luminaries from the field
  • myCAA Friday afternoon meeting and new board announcement with executive director Hunter O’Hanian and CAA staff
  • Re-imagined professional development workshops
