Call for Session Proposals
IAS-Sponsored sessions (https://www.italianartsociety.org)
Sixteenth Century Society & Conference (https://sixteenthcentury.org)
San Diego, 27 October—30 October 2022
Hyatt Regency, Minneapolis, Minnesota
The IAS is seeking complete 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), and 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 should submit send a brief abstract (250 words max.); session title; a list of speakers with their affiliations and paper titles; and the name of the chair (with email address(es), affiliation(s), and one-page CV(s) to the online submission form by 6 April 2022.
In addition to the usual session with three to four papers, note these new formats:
· Round Tables sponsored by affiliated societies.
· Workshop A: Discussion of pre-circulated papers in a workshop format (limit of 5 participants).
· Workshop B: Analysis of thorny translation or paleography questions; pre-circulation is not required (limit of 4 participants).
· Workshop C: Examination of a big issue or question with brief comments from presenters and lively audience participation. These are similar to round tables but with more audience engagement (limit of 4 participants).
The SCSC welcomes graduate student speakers who are within one or two years of defending their dissertations. However, all sessions must include at least one speaker who has received the PhD or other terminal degree, and predoctoral speakers should present dissertation research, not term papers.
IAS Deadline: 6 April 2022
Completed panels are due to SCSC (11 April 2022)
Organizers must be members of the IAS to propose a session to the IAS Program Committee.
