Call for APS-Sponsored Session Proposals RSA 2024, Chicago, IL, United States.
The Association of Print Scholars (APS) invites submissions for its sponsored sessions at the Renaissance Society of America conference, to be held in Boston from March 20th-22th, 2025.

APS-sponsored session proposals may be related to any theme of Renaissance and Early Modern printmaking, or any aspect of print scholarship for the era 1300–1700. RSA is a multidisciplinary society, and we especially welcome session proposals that transcend geographic and disciplinary boundaries, as well as those that engage current theoretical interests in historiography, materialism, archival theory, bibliographic studies, or social history.

Series of sessions in honor or in memory of an individual scholar are limited to two sessions per honoree. Co-organized sessions are welcome; junior and senior scholars are encouraged to collaborate. Organizers may act as chair(s), or they may elect another scholar to serve this position, as per RSA guidelines.

You do not need to be a member of RSA to submit a session proposal to APS, but all accepted participants must become RSA members for 2024-2025 and register for the conference. Please note that proposing a session or a paper indicates your commitment to attend.

Organizers, chairs, and/or co-organizers or co-chairs must be members of APS, however, please note that those currently serving as APS officers, whether elected or appointed, may not submit conference proposals for panels sponsored by the organization during their tenure, although are welcome to participate in the selected panel.

How to submit a session proposal for APS sponsorship:
To propose an APS-sponsored session, please submit your session title along with a 250-word abstract describing the topics and issues of printmaking that your session will address. Applicants do not need to propose a full panel of presenters in order to submit a session proposal. Submissions should include a two-page CV for each organizer. In the subject line, please indicate “APS-Sponsored session proposal RSA 2025” and send to Braden Scott at rsacoordinatorprintscholars.org

Submission deadline for all session proposals is: May 15th, 2024.
Acceptance decisions will be communicated to submitters by June 1st, 2024.
