Open Call: New Media Caucus Affiliated Panel Proposals

The New Media Caucus invites proposals for our affiliated panel session to be held during the 2021 College Art Association annual conference in New York City.

Panels should reflect New Media Caucus’ mandate of promoting the development and understanding of new media art with an emphasis on contemporary or emerging technologies.
