Conference: Interventions into Postcolonialism and Beyond: A Call for New Sites, Objects, and Times, NY, 13–16 February 2013‏


Interventions into Postcolonialism and Beyond : A Call for New Sites, Objects, and Times

College Art Association 101st Annual Conference New York, NY, February 13–16, 2013

This session calls for projects that problematize sites, objects, and times which were not "officially" colonized, and hence fall outside the typical areas of postcolonial inquiry. Although we are in pursuit of projects that are informed by postcolonial criticism, we require the intervention of the author by introducing new sites (broadly defined). The main questions we will explore are: Is postcolonial critique to become a new "universal" with its own set of norms, or will it open up new and unexplored empirical and theoretical horizons? Where and how should we define our temporal, geographical, and conceptual boundaries, particularly relating to sites with dubious colonial experiences?

The call for papers is open to all areas of art and architectural history, regardless of time period and geography. Yet, empirically and methodologically innovative studies in/on socially complex and multicultural sites are especially welcome.

Please send your proposals/abstracts to:

Kıvanc Kılınç, Izmir University of Economics, Izmir:
<kivanc.kilinc@ieu.edu.tr>; and

Saygın Salgırlı, Sabancı University, Istanbul:
<salgirli@sabanciuniv.edu>


PROPOSALS FOR PAPERS TO SESSION CHAIRS: DUE MAY 4, 2012

Proposals for participation in sessions should be sent directly to the appropriate session chair(s). If a session is co-chaired, a copy should be sent to each chair, unless otherwise indicated. Every proposal should include the following five items:

1. Completed session participation proposal form (located at the end of the CAA 2013 brochure, available online at: collegeart.org).

2. Preliminary abstract of one to two double-spaced, typed pages.

3. Letter explaining speaker’s interest, expertise in the topic, and CAA membership status.

4. CV with home and office mailing addresses, email address, and phone and fax numbers. Include summer address and telephone number, if applicable.

5. Documentation of work when appropriate, especially for sessions in which artists might discuss their own work


CHAIRS DETERMINE THE SPEAKERS FOR THEIR SESSIONS AND REPLY TO ALL APPLICANTS BY JUNE 4, 2012.


ABSTRACTS OF PAPERS TO SESSION CHAIRS: DUE AUGUST 6, 2012

A final abstract must be prepared by each speaker and submitted to the session chair for publication in Abstracts 2012. Detailed specifications for preparation of abstracts are sent to all speakers. Submissions to Abstracts 2012 are determined by the session chair(s).


FULL TEXTS OF PAPERS TO SESSION CHAIRS: DUE DECEMBER 3, 2012

Speakers are required to submit the full texts of their papers to chairs. Where sessions have contributions other than prepared papers, chairs may require equivalent materials by the same deadline. These submissions are essential to the success of the sessions; they assure the quality and designated length of the papers and permit their circulation to discussants and other participants as requested by the chair.


GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR SPEAKERS

1. CAA individual membership is required of ALL participants.

2. No one may participate in the same capacity two years in a row. Speakers in the 2012 conference may not be speakers in 2013; a 2012 speaker may, however, be a discussant in 2013, and vice versa.

3. No one may participate in more than one session in any capacity (e.g., a chair, speaker, or discussant in one session is ineligible for participation in any capacity in any other session), although a chair may deliver a paper or serve as discussant in his or her own session provided he or she did not serve in that capacity in 2012. Exception: A speaker who participates in a practical session on professional and educational issues may present a paper in a second session.

4. Session chairs must be informed if one or more proposals are being submitted to other sessions for consideration.

5. A paper that has been published previously or presented at another scholarly conference may not be delivered at the CAA Annual Conference.

6. Only one individual may submit a proposal and present a paper at the conference.

7. Acceptance in a session implies a commitment to attend that session and participate in person.
