Call for Papers | British Country Houses, CAA in 2014

Historians of British Art Session at CAA 2014 in Chicago
British Country Houses: Architecture, Collections, and Gardens

Chicago, Thursday, 13 February 2014, 12:30–2:00

Proposals due by 10 January 2014

In a spirit of nimble experimentation, the Historians of British Art invite proposals for an informal lunchtime session in Chicago at the 2014 meeting of the College Art Association on the subject of “British Country Houses: Architecture, Collections, and Gardens.” As a midday session, it is open to the public without the usual CAA membership or conference registration requirements. Speakers need belong only to HBA (or become a member soon!). Extended abstracts will be available digitally before the conference to encourage more productive discussion during the 90-minute slot.

Papers might address material aspects as well as larger contextual approaches that situate particular families and houses within narratives of patronage, the history of taste, or British identity. Please email a 200-word proposal and a CV to CraigAshleyHanson@gmail.com by 10 January 2014. In light of the unusually quick turn-around, early responses are encouraged. Questions are most welcome.
