CALL FOR PAPERS
THEME: WORKS IN PROGRESS
The Art Historians of Southern California is dedicated to serving the intellectual growth and the professional development of our colleagues in the art world. This year, the organization is creating an opportunity to exchange ideas and to create a discourse about the latest research in art history and art theory.
What are you working on? From polished fragments of an upcoming paper to an idea for a project—-whatever your project—take advantage of this opportunity to exchange ideas and to create a discourse about the latest research in art history and art theory.
We have about ten slots available for brief presentations and substantive discussion. Consider planning for a seven to ten minutes presentation and another ten minutes for a response session.
Please join us for an afternoon of scholarship and an important announcement about a new project from the Art Historians of Southern California.
Annual Membership: $15
Lifetime Membership: $50
