Dear CAAH colleagues,
The American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies, an affiliate society
of CAA, hosts it own interdisciplinary conference each spring. This year it
will be in Montreal, March 30 - April 2, 2006.

The CAAH listserv members might be interested to know that there are
several dozen sessions that specifically ask for participation from art
historians working in the "long 18th century," i.e., late 17th - early 19th
centuries. Paper proposals are due September 15th. There are too many
relevant sessions to mention here, but the website with the complete Call
for Papers, as well as descriptions of each session, is:

I list below the sessions specifically offered by members of the Historians
of 18th- century Art & Architecture (HECAA), itself an affiliate society of
both CAA and ASECS. Please contact the session chairs directly for more
information or to submit a paper proposal.

Sincerely, Anne Schroder President, Historians of 18th-century Art &
Architecture (HECAA)
