Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on March 3, 2016

From CAA News (22 January 2016). . .

105th Annual Conference of the College Art Association
New York, 15–18 February 2017

Proposals due by 18 April 2016

For the CAA 105th Annual Conference, CAA will change the format of the conference as we look to liven up the experience for all our members. The changes highlighted below are the result of a critical look at the event by the organization’s Annual Conference Committee.

• New time grid: All sessions will be ninety minutes in length, allowing for more sessions
• More types of submissions and therefore more ways to participate, such as complete session proposals, with participants chosen in advance; proposals to chairs, who will solicit speakers through a call for papers; and independent proposals of papers
• Individuals may participate in consecutive years, if their proposals are accepted
• Other Annual Conference Events (more information available here)

You can download and read the full report of recommendations by CAA’s Task Force on the Annual Conference. Please remember all participants will have to be members and registered for the conference for 2017.
