Honorarium of $1000 for Hosts
Deadline to Apply: December 1, 2021
I am reaching out on behalf of CAA and the National Committee of the History of Art (NCHA) to encourage you to consider serving as a host for the 2022 CAA-Getty International Program. Since it began in 2012, the program has brought 135 scholars to CAA’s annual conferences, from fifty countries located in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. A preconference colloquium on international topics in art history traditionally inaugurates the week of CAA’s annual meeting, kicking off four days of conference sessions, meetings with new colleagues, and visits to museums and galleries.
