Appel de propositions de séances | Call for Session Proposals

We invite the submission of session proposals for the annual UAAC-AAUC conference. We hope to offer a range of panels, roundtables, and workshops that reflect UAAC’s diverse constituents, in terms of membership and scholarship. Panels, roundtables, and workshops are invited that interrogate historical and contemporary art history, visual and material culture, creative studio practice, design practice, theory and criticism, pedagogy, and museum and gallery practice. We particularly welcome sessions that focus on areas that have not been strongly represented at previous UAAC conferences, such as Indigenous scholarship and practices, scholars, artists/theorists dealing with race(ism), immigration, and diaspora. Exceptionally this year, we invite proposals for preconstituted panels, roundtables and/or workshops that address issues of BIPOC representation, equity, and diversity.

Proposals (which can be in English, French or an Indigenous language) should be in Word format, include a title, a 150-word description of the panel, and full contact information for the session chair/s. The deadline for submission to uaac@gozoom.ca is March 16, 2020.

Only members of UAAC-AAUC may chair or co-chair and/or present papers in conference sessions. Non-members who propose sessions will be required to become members in the event that their proposals are accepted.

We welcome proposals from permanent and contractual academic staff, independent scholars, artists and curators, and graduate students in terminal degree programs. Sessions that include a mixture of graduate students and faculty/independent researchers are also encouraged.

Please note that only ONE proposal will be accepted per member, whether that proposal is for a single or jointly chaired session, roundtable or workshop.

We invite you to visit the UAAC website at http://www.uaac-aauc.com to find out about the conference and membership.

Please submit proposals in Word format using the attached form to Fran Pauzé, at uaac@gozoom.ca by March 16, 2020

A receipt will be sent for all proposals received. If you do not receive a receipt, please contact the UAAC-AAUC office.
