20 Grants for Traveling to 2012 CAA in Los Angeles

Posted in conferences (to attend), opportunities by Editor on May 28, 2011

Given that many of Enfilade’s readers are not based in the U.S., this announcement may be useful, especially for readers “from developing countries or from nations not well represented in CAA’s membership.” It would be nice to see a scholar of the eighteenth century among the recipients, and we would love to see you at the HECAA events. From CAA News:

The Getty Foundation has awarded a $100,000 grant to CAA in support of international travel for twenty applicants to attend the 100th Annual Conference and Centennial Celebration, taking place February 22–25, 2012, in Los Angeles. Through the new Getty Foundation Travel Grant Program, CAA will provide funds for travel expenses, hotel accommodations, per diems, and conference registrations. Recipients will also receive one-year CAA memberships. Applicants may be art historians, artists who teach art history, and art historians who are museum curators; those from developing countries or from nations not well represented in CAA’s membership are especially encouraged to apply.

The goal of the project is to increase international participation in CAA and to diversify the organization’s membership (presently sixty-five countries are represented). CAA also wishes to familiarize international participants with the submission process for conference sessions and to expand their professional network in the visual arts. Members of CAA’s International Committee have agreed to host the participants, and the National Committee for the History of Art will also lend support to the program.

CAA will publish an official call for grant applications on its website on Friday, July 8, 2011; the program will also be publicized in CAA News. A jury will select the twenty grant recipients.
