Call for participation: College Art Association, Annual Conference, New York, 15-18 February 2017 (deadline 30th August 2016)
The 2017 Call for Participation for the 105th Annual Conference, taking place February 15–18, 2017, in New York, NY, is now open.
The 2017 Call for Participation describes approved sessions for next year’s conference which are seeking contributions. CAA and the session chairs invite your participation: please follow the instructions in the link to submit a proposal for a paper or presentation directly to the appropriate session chair(s).
Deadline: August 30, 2016
The session Decoding Destruction and Decay chaired by Maile S. Hutterer (University of Oregon) and Sarah Thompson (Rochester Institute of Technology) examines loss, destruction, fragmentation, and restoration in the context of intellectual inquiry. Potential questions include: what are the ramifications of studying buildings in their less-than-complete states? How does decay, disaster, or resurgence lead to the reordering of architectural canons? What are we able to see, understand, or imagine in architectural fragments that would otherwise be impossible in a complete or restored structure? What can we learn from buildings via processes of preservation or restoration, and how do such processes open or close different means of investigation?
