IAS at SCSC (Sixteenth Century Society & Conference)

Each year, the IAS seeks session proposals that address any issue relevant to Italian art and architecture during the long sixteenth century. The Sixteenth Century Society & Conference (SCSC) was founded to promote scholarship on the early modern era (c.1450-1600), actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community. See below for more information on currentupcoming, and past IAS participation at the Sixteenth Century Society Annual Conference.
