Call for Panel Proposals – CAA New York 2015

The New Media Caucus invites panel proposals for a 1.5-hour affiliated panel open session to be held during the 2015 College Art Association annual conference in New York.

  • 300 – 600 word abstract addressing:

    • areas of investigation
    • questions the panel will raise

 Media-N Journal of the New Media Caucus will publish a conference edition after the CAA conference, showcasing conference proceedings sponsored by the NMC. To this end, Chairs will be responsible for writing a report about the panel in addition to collecting, editing and arranging the materials from their panelists for the journal edition. Media-N offers flexibility regarding how to achieve the publishing requirement. Typically, some chairs and panelists choose to publish traditional papers, others prefer to create a transcript of the presentation and discussion, or to publish an interview format. Once a panel is accepted, the Editor-in-Chief of Media-N will contact the chair(s) to further discuss and plan for the publishing requirement. All materials for publication must be completed by mid-April after the conference.
