the International Community Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2003 01:57:29 -0500 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- CFP: Going Global: Defining the College Art Association's Role in the International Community The International Committee of the College Art Association invites paper submissions for its session "Going Global," at the CAA annual conference, to be held in Seattle, February 18-21, 2004. CAA represents over 13,000 artists, art historians, scholars, curators, collectors, educators, art publishers, and other visual arts professionals worldwide. Another 2,000 university art and art history departments, museums, libraries, and professional and commercial organizations hold institutional memberships. At a time when intense debates center on the challenges brought about by globalization and internationalization, the arts and humanities have the potential to play a crucial role in defining, critiquing, revealing, and responding to the issues of a changing world. CAA, granted NGO status by the United Nations in 1998, is now in a position to lead discussion on these issues and to influence international cultural policy at the highest level. The International Committee invites artists, critics, museum professionals, scholars, and teachers to submit papers that address the challenges of internationalization as they relate to and help define CAA's role in the international community and in relation to UNESCO. Speakers should not only educate but also advocate positions regarding the potentialities within the arts and arts organizations to address numerous concerns, including but not limited to: military conflict, cultural patrimony disputes, monuments in peril, environmental and industrialization movements, human displacement, repatriation, and cultural difference. Papers should consider how to facilitate the involvement of all sectors of CAA's membership in projects of broad international concern. Submissions should include the following items: * Completed session participation proposal form (which can be downloaded from http://www.collegeart.org/caa/conference/2004/call.html * Preliminary absract of 1-2 double-spaced typed pages * Letter explaining speaker's interest, expertise in topic, and CAA membership status * C.V. with home and office mailing addresses, email, phone and fax numbers. Include summer address and telephone number if applicable. * Slides, videotapes, or other documentation of work when appropriate (with S.A.S.E.), especially for sessions in which artists might discuss their own work * A Stamped, self-addressed postcard for confirmation that proposal has been received Submissions should be sent to one of the session chairs: A.
