Universities Art Association of Canada Conference hosted by OCAD University

OCAD University will host the annual conference of the Universities Art Association of Canada (UAAC-AAUC) this October 23 to 26, and is inviting the submission of session proposals.

Sessions are encouraged that explore — within any geographical and temporal context — issues from the full range of scholarship in the visual arts including art history, visual and material culture, creative practices and research in studio art, design practices and research, theory and criticism, pedagogy, and museum and gallery practices.

The Program Committee welcomes proposals for chaired (or co-chaired) sessions, roundtables and workshops. 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.

Proposals (which can be in English or French) should include a title; a 150 word description of the panel; and full contact information for the session chair(s).

Only members of UAAC-AAUC may chair or co-chair 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.

Proposals are welcome from full-time faculty, independent scholars/artists, and graduate students: however, members are reminded that only graduate students in terminal degree programs may propose sessions and that a limited number of these will be accepted. Sessions that include a mixture of graduate students and faculty/independent researchers are also encouraged.

Proposals must be submitted by March 14, 2014. Visit the UAAC-AAUC submissions info page for complete details.
