The Congress is an annual gathering of more than 3,000 scholars interested in medieval studies, broadly defined. The IAS seeks session proposals that cover Italian art from the fourth through the fifteenth centuries. See our submission guidelines for eligibility requirements to propose a session for IAS at Kalamazoo. Please send abstracts of 250 words together with a 1 page cv to programs@italianartsociety.org.
