American Association for Italian Studies (AAIS) 2020

The Italian Art Society (IAS) seeks proposals for IAS-sponsored sessions at the annual meeting of the American Association of Italian Studies (AAIS).
In keeping with the mission of the AAIS, sessions that approach Italian Studies through interdisciplinary lenses and represent a range of interests and time periods are particularly welcome. Topics that are broadly conceived to include architecture, cinema, mass media, etc., are of special interest.

 IAS members interested in putting together a panel should submit the following items:

• session title
• abstract (100 words max.), to be forwarded to the AAIS in the event of selection
• short list of potential or desired speakers (they need not be confirmed)
• a sentence or two contextualizing the proposal; explain the relevance/importance of the session and the related expertise of the 
organizer(s) and speakers
• brief CV (1–3 pp)
