Call for Papers | HECAA Emerging Scholar Showcase

Posted in Calls for Papers, graduate students by Editor on October 3, 2022

HECAA Emerging Scholar Showcase
Online, Monday, 28 November 2022

Proposals due by 9 October 2022

The Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture is pleased to invite Emerging Scholars studying the art, architecture, and visual culture of the long eighteenth century around the globe to participate in a virtual showcase once again. Our hope is to provide a platform for early career scholars to promote their own research, as well as a forum for networking and ongoing community building.

Each scholar will be given 3–5 minutes to present their work, followed by an open question and answer session. This year’s Emerging Scholars Showcase will be held on Monday, November 28 in the late afternoon/early evening. This shift is in response to the widespread preference for non-weekend events expressed by members who responded to the survey. As last year, an additional Spring showcase may be added if there is sufficient interest, so we encourage you to apply even if you are unable to present on November 28.

To apply, please fill out this form. Applications are due by Sunday, 9 October 2022 at midnight (EST). Please direct any questions to Daniella Berman: daniella.berman@nyu.edu.

Emerging Scholars do not need to be current HECAA members and may be current graduate students, and those who have received their degrees in the past five years; so please circulate this call to your networks as appropriate. If you are interested in volunteering (to help with tech-issues and help moderate the Q&A) for the Emerging Scholars Showcase, please reach out to Daniella.
