SCSC SESSION PROPOSALS EXTENDED DEADLINE to 27 March 2017
Submit a proposal to chair an IAS-sponsored session at the Sixteenth-Century Studies Annual Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin 26-29 October 2017.
Each year, the 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. This year’s conference coincides with the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s “Ninety-Five Theses,” making it an excellent opportunity to reconsider the role and use of images in early modern Europe.
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 IAS is 27 March 2017. See our submission guidelines for eligibility requirements to propose a session for IAS at SCSC.
