39th Annual AAH Conference & Bookfair
Call for Sessions
The University of Reading invites session submissions for the 39th AAH Annual Conference, which will take place April 2013. Proposal deadline: 20 April 2012.
We welcome proposals for sessions that address the widest possible range of art-historical topics, including architectural and design histories. The 2013 conference aims to represent the interests of an expansive art-historical community by covering all branches of its discipline/s and the range of its visual cultures. We therefore welcome proposals from across a broad chronological range (from prehistory onwards) and a wide geographical one. We would also like to encourage convenors to propose sessions that address topics of methodological, historiographical, or interdisciplinary interest as well as ones that open up debates about the future of the discipline/s.
The format of the sessions aims to be flexible enough to accommodate variations in the standard format (up to eight slots of 40 minutes per day). In particular we aim to make some of the timetable available for sessions which wish to take new forms, for example round tables or open discussions. Conventional proposals for sessions which will issue calls for papers are also very welcome. Convenors may propose shorter, focused sessions or longer, general ones over more than one day. Prospective convenors are asked to indicate if their session will use the
standard format or to say how their proposed session will be organized.
Session proposals should include a title and abstract (no longer than 250 words), and the name(s) and contact details of the session convenor(s).
Deadline for session Proposals: 20 April 2012.
Session abstracts and a call for papers will be published in the June and October Bulletin in 2012.
