CFP: ICMA Sponsored Session Proposal, AAH Annual Conference 2022, Deadline 20th April 2021

London, 6-8 April 2022
Call for ICMA Sponsored Session Proposals due 20 April 2021

The International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA) seeks proposals for sessions to be held under the organization’s sponsorship at the Association for Art History Annual Conference to be held 6-8 April 2022 at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Proposals to the ICMA must include a session abstract and a CV of the organizer(s).

Please note the following:

  • The AAH does not require a slate of speakers; the AAH will generate a CFP once sessions have been selected. Therefore the ICMA will not request a slate of speakers.
  • The ICMA requires the CVs of the session organizers, but the AAH does not.
  • Session organizers and speakers must be ICMA members but are not required to become AAH members. However, AAH members receive a preferential conference rate.
  • Sessions at the AAH conference are built of 70-minute blocks, with a minimum of two blocks per session, up to four blocks in a day. Each block consists of two papers of 25 minutes plus 10 minutes of questions for each paper. The ICMA seeks to sponsor one session of two 70-minute blocks (four papers).

Upload your proposals here by 20 April 2021

Please direct all inquiries to the Chair of the Programs Committee: Bryan C. Keene, Riverside City College, USA, 
The ICMA Programs and Lectures committee will select a session to sponsor and will notify the successful organizer(s) by 1 May 2021. The organizer(s) will then submit the ICMA-sponsored proposal to the AAH, which will make the final decision. Submit session proposals to the AAH by 7 May 2021 at following the guidelines posted on the AAH website: 


Thanks to a generous grant from the Kress Foundation, funds may be available to defray travel costs of speakers in ICMA sponsored sessions up to a maximum of $600 for domestic travel and of $1200 for overseas travel. If available, the Kress funds are allocated for travel and hotel only. Speakers in ICMA sponsored sessions will be refunded only after the conference, against travel receipts. In addition to speakers, session organizers delivering papers as an integral part of the session (i.e. with a specific title listed in the program) are now also eligible to receive travel funding.
