The CAA-Getty International Program, generously supported by the Getty Foundation, provides funding to fifteen art historians, museum curators, and artists who teach art history to attend the 104th Annual Conference, taking place February 3-6, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The grant covers travel expenses, hotel accommodations for eight nights, per diems, conference registrations, and one-year CAA memberships. The program will include a one-day preconference colloquium on international issues in art history on February 2 at which grant recipients will present and discuss their common professional interests and issues. Attendance at the preconference is limited and by invitation only.
The goal of the project is to increase international participation in CAA, to diversify the organization’s membership, and to foster collaborations between American art historians, artists, and curators and their international colleagues. CAA also wishes to familiarize international participants with the submission process for conference sessions to encourage ongoing involvement with the association. As they have in previous years, representatives from CAA’s membership will host program participants during the conference week.
Are You Eligible?
Applicants must be practicing art historians who teach at a university or work as a curator in a museum, or artists who teach art history. They must have a good working knowledge of English and be available to participate in CAA events from February 1 to 8, 2016.
