Deadline: January 10, 2013
The Visual Culture Caucus of the American Studies Association (ASA) invites submissions of individual paper abstracts and panel abstracts for editorial assistance and for caucus sponsorship at the next ASA meeting in Washington, D.C., on November 21-24, 2013.
For paper abstracts and session proposals sent by January 10, the Programming Committee of the Visual Culture Caucus can offer critical feedback and facilitate networking among scholars who are looking for session participants, chairs, or commentators. We encourage scholars to submit panel CFPs to our Works in Progress webpage, accessible through our caucus blog (http://www.theasa.net/caucus_visual/). Any ASA member may join the caucus by clicking on the registration column on the blog homepage (requires ASA username and password).
The caucus also invites preformed panels to submit bids for sponsorship by January 10. Caucus sponsorship does not guarantee acceptance by the ASA, but it can improve a panel’s chances of acceptance. Please do so by submitting a full packet of panel and paper abstracts. Submitting a panel for sponsorship is not the same as submitting a panel to the ASA; please be advised that both are necessary. Session proposals should explore historical, theoretical, and/or methodological issues in American visual culture, which includes (but is not limited to) prints, photography, painting, sculpture, comics/graphic novels, illustrated books, film, television, digital media, and a wide range of practices of looking. Our criteria are: attention to the visual (not merely using images to illustrate other ideas); potential to contribute new scholarship to American Studies; interdisciplinarity; and compliance with the 2013 conference theme of “Beyond the Logic of Debt, Toward an Ethics of Collective Dissent” (see: http://www.theasa.net/annual_meeting/page/submit_a_proposal/).
