The Italian Art Society is seeking complete session proposals (including confirmed speakers) for the 2018 meeting of the Leeds International Medieval Congress, to be held in Leeds 2-5 July 2018. The theme of the 25th-anniversary 2018 congress is ‘Memory’, and proposals may touch on all areas of the theme. For a list of suggestions and prompts see the LIMC website.
Sessions are 90 minutes long, and feature three 20-minute papers and a moderator. To propose a session for IAS sponsorship you must submit: 1) a 100-word abstract giving a clear rationale for the topic, 2) names and contact information for all speakers including affiliation, email, and postal address, 3) a list of key terms for the session and papers, and 4) indications of technology needs beyond a data projector and PC. The Italian Art Society is dedicated to the study of Italian art and architecture from prehistory to the present day; session proposals should address both the aims of the IAS and the theme of ‘Memory’ set by the 2018 Congress. Send session proposals to the IAS Programs Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 September 2017.
