Submit a proposal to chair an Italian Art Society-sponsored session at the Sixteenth-Century Studies Annual Conference in Bruges, August 18-20, 2016!
Each year, the IAS seeks session proposals that address any issue relevant to Italian art and architecture during the long sixteenth century. The Sixteenth Century Society & Conference (SCSC) was founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (c.1450-1600), and actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. IAS members interested in putting together a panel or linked panels (even roundtables are possible) should send a brief abstract (250 words max), session title, a short list of potential or desired speakers (they need not be confirmed), the name of the chair(s) with email addresses and affiliation, and a one-page CV to the IAS Program Committee Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org). The conference next year will be held August 18-20, 2016 (instead of in October). The deadline for submissions of session proposals is October 18, 2015. See our submission guidelines (http://italianartsociety.org/conferences-lectures/ias-conference-submission-guidelines/) for eligibility requirements to propose a session for IAS at SCSC.
