CFP: Propose a 1.5 hour special SHERA session at CAA 2016 (Washington, DC; February 3-6, 2016)

As an affiliate of CAA, SHERA is eligible for a 1.5-hour special session at the upcoming CAA conference, to be held February 3–6, 2016, in Washington, DC. We are looking for volunteers to chair or co-chair a SHERA-sponsored panel with a broadly-formulated theme that explicitly appeals to the full range of our members’ interests, both geographical and chronological. We are inviting proposals that address a historical period, a certain trend, or the artistic reflection on a socio-historical or formal issue of Russian and/or East European arts. Since SHERA already has a 2.5-hour session “Exploring Native Traditions in Eastern Europe, Russia, and Eurasia” chaired by Alison Hilton, we would especially welcome proposals that highlight issues other than cultural interactions between local traditions and external artistic sources, the central theme of Dr. Hilton’s panel. Please send your proposals to by May 5.
Apart from coming up with a theme and a call for papers, the chair(s) will need to find three speakers for the 90-minute session. The deadline for submitting this information to the CAA website, including the speakers’ names and titles of their papers, is June 19, but the submitted information may be modified until September 4.
You have to be a member of SHERA to chair a panel and present at CAA. However, you do not have to join SHERA to be considered as a chair or to submit a paper proposal. Once your proposal is accepted, you are expected to join our organization.
