Call for Papers | HECAA Open Session at UAAC 2023, Banff

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on May 27, 2023

Apologies for the short notice, but this open session at October’s UAAC/AAUC Conference is still accepting proposals (until Wednesday). CH

Open Session Sponsored by the Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture
Universities Art Association of Canada / l’association d’art des universités du Canada
Banff, 19–21 October 2023
Chaired by Kathryn Desplanque (UNC Chapel Hill)

Proposals due by 31 May 2023

HECAA works to stimulate, foster, and disseminate knowledge of all aspects of eighteenth-century visual culture. This open session welcomes papers that examine any aspect of art and visual culture from the 1680s to the 1830s. Special consideration will be given to proposals that employ innovative methodological approaches, study marginalized communities, and challenge Eurocentrism. Applicants should send  a 250-word abstract with “HECAA Open Session” as the subject heading to Kathryn Desplanque at desplanq@ad.unc.edu.

Kathryn adds: “University Arts Association of Canada is Canada’s College Art Association, but more intimate and friendly! This year, we are so fortunate to be hosted at the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity. Banff and Lake Louise are nestled in the Rocky Mountains and is one of the most gorgeous destinations in Canada. Please join me in visiting it for the first time. The conference takes place 19–21 October 2023 (the leaves should be spectacular). Of particular note is UAAC’s Annual Graduate Student Essay award. Graduate students who’ve presented papers at the UAAC conference can submit complete versions of their essays for consideration. The winning essay is awarded $250CAD and will be published in the spring 2024 issue of the Canadian Art Review (RACAR). As a past recipient of the award, I’m eager to coach a graduate student through this process.”
