CFP: APS-Sponsored Sessions at 2022 RSA Conference

The Association of Print Scholars invites submissions for its sponsored sessions at the Renaissance Society of America conference, to be held in Dublin, Ireland, from 30 March to 2 April 2022.

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. Chair or co-chairs must be members of APS. Current APS officers are ineligible for submitting conference proposals to be sponsored by the organization, but are welcome to participate in the selected panel. 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 2022 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 two-page CV for each chair. In the subject line, please indicate “APS-Sponsored session proposal RSA 2022” and send to:


Submission deadline for all session proposals is Friday, 18 June 2021

Acceptance decisions will be communicated to submitters by Monday, 29 June 2021.
Relevant research areas: Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque
