The IAS is seeking 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), and actively encourages the participation of international scholars as well as the integration of younger colleagues into the academic community.

IAS members interested in putting together a panel or linked panels should send a brief abstract (250 words max.), session title, a short list of potential or desired speakers (they need not be confirmed), the name of the chair(s) with email addresses and affiliation, and a one-page CV to the IAS Program Committee Chair (programs@italianartsociety.org).

The deadline for submissions of session proposals to IAS is 18 March 2018.

Completed panels are due to SCSC by 15 April 2018.

Please note that the SCSC welcomes graduate student speakers who are within one or two years of defending their dissertations. However, all sessions must include at least one speaker who has received the PhD or other terminal degree, and predoctoral speakers should present dissertation research, not term papers.
