Each year, the Italian Art Society (IAS) seeks session proposals that address any issue relevant to Italian art and architecture during the long sixteenth century. The Sixteenth Century Society & Conference (SCSC) was founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (c.1450-1600), actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community.
IAS members interested in putting together a panel or linked panels (even roundtables are possible) should send a brief abstract (250 words max), session title, a short list of potential or desired speakers (they need not be confirmed), the name of the chair(s) with email addresses and affiliation, and a one-page CV to the IAS Program Committee Chair. The conference this year will be held 26-29 October, 2017.
The deadline for submissions of session proposals to the IAS is 17 March, 2017. See our submission guidelines for eligibility requirements to propose a session for IAS at SCSC.
