Call for Session Proposals
IAS-Sponsored Session
111th College Art Association (CAA) Annual Conference
New York, NY, 15–18 February 2023

The Italian Art Society (IAS) invites proposals for one sponsored conference session (1.5 hours) at CAA, to be held in New York City 15–18 February 2023.

IAS members interested in organizing a panel on any topic of Italian art and architecture and their study 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.

Please also include the five CAA Fields of Study that best represent your proposal, per CAA proposal instructions. The first five selected will be used by CAA to filter submissions during the review process and are later searchable in the conference schedule. See an example from CAA 2022. Review list as pdf at this link.

We will consider both completed panels and those soliciting contributors, which will be completed during CAA’s annual “Call for Participation” in the summer.

In preparing your application, please consult IAS Submission Guidelines and CAA’s 2023 Submission Portal, to ensure you have gathered the correct materials for the panel format you are submitting for consideration by IAS at this time.

Deadline: Please submit all materials via the online submission form by 15 April 2022.

Please contact Janis Elliot, the IAS Program Committee Chair (, with any questions.

Please also note the following rules for participation in the CAA conference:

If an individual’s proposal is accepted and they are not currently a member of CAA, they must join CAA within 90 days of acceptance. All session participants (chair, presenter, discussant) must be current Individual CAA members, and register for the conference.

Your session, presentation, or paper content may not have been published previously or presented at another scholarly conference.
