CFP: APS-Sponsored Session for the 2020 Renaissance Society of America Conference (Philadelphia, 2–4 April 2020)

The Association of Print Scholars invites submissions for its sponsored sessions at the Renaissance Society of America conference, to be held in Philadelphia, 2–4 April 2020.

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 Renaissance printmaking’s 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. Chair or co-chairs must be members of APS. You do not need to be an RSA member to submit a session proposal to APS, but all accepted participants must become RSA members for 2020 and register for the conference. Please note that proposing a session or a paper indicates your commitment to attend.

How to submit a session proposal for APS sponsorship:
To propose an APS-sponsored session, please submit your session title along with a 250-word abstract describing the topics and issues of printmaking that your session will address. Applicants do not need to propose a full panel of presenters in order to submit a session proposal.
Submissions should include a CV for each chair. Please indicate “APS-Sponsored session proposal RSA 2020 Philadelphia” in the subject line, and send to:

The Submission deadline for all session proposals is:
Monday, 10 June 2019 at 11:59 p.m. (U.S. Pacific Daylight Time).

Acceptance decisions will be communicated to submitters in by Monday, 17 June 2019.
