CAA Council of Readers Application
The CAA Annual Conference brings together over 5,000 art historians, artists, designers, and visual arts professionals in all stages of their careers. Each year we offer over 300 sessions, selected by the CAA Council of Readers and the Annual Conference Committee, representing the vast scholarship and practice of CAA members.

Over 950 proposals are submitted for review each year for selection to the conference program. Each proposal is read by three Council members. By providing their time, knowledge, and expertise of their fields the council helps to shape the conference program. Each member of the Council reviews up to 60 proposals per year from across CAA's fields of study and as much as possible from within their self-identified scholarly focus and knowledge. Most proposals include one 250 words abstract, while complete session submissions can include 4-5 abstracts (1250 words). Each reader receives a similar amount of content.

Each fall the Annual Conference Committee will appoint up to 22 new members to the Council of Readers to serve this crucial role in the review process.
