AAANZ banner2016 with title

The call for papers for the 2016 AAANZ Conference is now closed.

The Annual Conference of the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand will be held in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, 1–3 December 2016. The conference will be based at the Australian National University, with additional events hosted by the National Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery. Sessions will be 90 minutes with the expectation that each session will comprise 3 x 20 minute papers, followed by 10 minutes of questions, discussion, and commentary (except where noted otherwise in the session abstract).

Session convenors will manage their designated session, prior to and during the conference, with the aim of best addressing the conference theme The Work of Art. Proposals for papers must be sent to the Session Convenors listed on each session abstract below. Please do not send your abstracts to AAANZ the AAANZ 2016 Conference Committee.

*Some sessions have indicated that they already have the required number of speakers and these are listed as full in the session abstracts. Furthermore, the session ‘Responses to Contemporary Conflict,’ convened by Laura Webster and Magda Keaney is now full. Also full is the session ‘The interior as a work of art: 1700-1940,’ convened by Kim Clayton-Greene, Rebecca Edwards, and Alison Inglis. Please do not submit papers for these sessions.

Proposals should be received by Session Convenors by Monday 19 September 2016.
