Call for APS-Sponsored Session Proposals RSA 2024

The Association of Print Scholars invites submissions for its sponsored sessions at the Renaissance Society of America conference, to be held in Chicago, Illinois from March 21-23.

APS-sponsored session proposals may be related to any theme of Renaissance and Early Modern printmaking, or any aspect of print scholarship for the era 1300–1700. RSA is a multidisciplinary society, and we especially welcome session proposals that transcend geographic and disciplinary boundaries, as well as those that engage current theoretical interests in historiography, materialism, archival theory, bibliographic studies, or social history.

Series of sessions in honor or in memory of an individual scholar are limited to two sessions per honoree. Co-chaired sessions are welcome; junior and senior scholars are encouraged to collaborate.

You do not need to be a member of RSA to submit a session proposal to APS, but all accepted participants must become RSA members for 2024 and register for the conference. Please note that proposing a session or a paper indicates your commitment to attend.

Chair or co-chairs must be members of APS, however, please note that those currently serving as APS officers, whether elected or appointed, may not submit conference proposals for panels sponsored by the organization during their tenure, although are welcome to participate in the selected panel.
