The Pacific Arts Association (PAA) welcomes session proposals for presentation at the College
Art Association (CAA) Annual Conference in Chicago from 12-15 February 2014. By 8/1/2012, please electronically submit an abstract of your session proposal and a CV for you and your co-chair (if applicable) to both Stacy Kamehiro (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Bernida Webb-Binder at
Session chairs must be members of both PAA and CAA. One proposal will be chosen for sponsorship and the selected chair will receive a letter of support that he or she must submit electronically for consideration to the CAA Annual
Conference Committee by its September 3, 2012, deadline.
Prospective session chairs are encouraged to familiarize themselves with PAA (www.pacificarts.org) and to also look at CAA’s proposal submission process (http://www.collegeart.org/proposals/2014).
PAA is interested in sponsoring a lively session that reflects an aspect of current thought, practice and
research in Pacific art, architecture, theory and criticism, pedagogy, museum and curatorial practice, conservation, or developments in technology. Sessions will be chosen on the basis of its interest to PAA and its constituency as well as its relevance to the wider CAA constituency.
Please note: Any session proposal can be submitted directly to CAA but only one will receive a letter of support from PAA for sponsorship and consideration and must be submitted to PAA first by its August 1st deadline.
The Pacific Arts Association, founded in 1978, is an international organization devoted to the study of all the arts of Oceania. PAA provides a forum for dialogue and awareness about Pacific art and culture. By connecting individuals and institutions around the world, PAA encourages
greater cooperation among those who are involved with the creation, study, and exhibition of Pacific art. PAA is an affiliate society of the College Art Association, a professional organization whose members are committed to excellence in the practice, teaching, and research of and about art, art history, and related disciplines.
