Submit a session proposal for CAA 2020 in Chicago

TIAMSA ‘Share and Connect’ workshop on data modelling in art market studies, CAA, New York, 15 February 2019

TIAMSA organized a number of memorable events at the past CAA conference (12-15 February 2019 in New York), notably a fascinating session on „The Studio as Market Place” chaired by Julie Codell, a very productive workshop on data modelling in art market studies chaired by Sandra van Ginhoven and Clarissa Ricci, and a wonderful reception very kindly hosted by Christie’s Education! (See our ‘Past Events’ Page for more information: )

The CAA 2020 conference will be held in Chicago (12-15 Feb 2020, Hilton Chicago) and we are already planning our attendance there. As a CAA affiliated society, TIAMSA is entitled to one full academic session (1.5 hours) and one „business meeting“ (1 hour). Following this year’s successful formula, we intend to use the latter as a workshop for the discussion of a specific topic proposed by a TIAMSA member.

If you would like to propose a subject

– for the 1.5 hour academic session
– for the 1 hour workshop

please send us a title, a very brief CV and a short abstract (3-4 sentences) outlining your idea by 31 March 2019 to The TIAMSA Board will then select the most promising proposal, bearing in mind not only academic excellence but also a proposal’s potential interest to our members and visitors of the conference.

Applicants will be informed about the board’s decision in April.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide travel grants; however, you may apply for travel grants through the CAA.

We would be very happy to hear from members interested in chairing a session!

With best wishes,
Veronika, Johannes and Nirmalie

ANN: Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities, Naples Call for Applications: 2019-2020 Research Residencies

Opened in Fall 2018, the Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities / Centro per la Storia dell’Arte e dell’Architettura delle Città Portuali is a collaboration between the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte in Naples and the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art  History at the University of Texas at Dallas, with the participation of the Université Paris-Sorbonne.

Housed within the Capodimonte’s bosco in a rustic eighteenth-century agricultural building called La Capraia (the goat farm), the Center is a laboratory for new research in the cultural histories of port cities and the mobilities of artworks, people, technologies, and ideas. Research and programs at La Capraia are dedicated to exploring global histories of art, architecture, and cultural production, while grounded in direct study of artworks, sites, and materials in Naples as well as southern Italy. Through Research Residencies and regular site-based Research Workshops and Symposia, the Center at La Capraia supports scholarly access to Naples, fosters new research on Naples and on other port cities, and creates a network of students and scholars working on related projects.

The Advisory Committee of the Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities invites applications for Research Residencies for PhD students in the earlier stages of their dissertations. Projects, which may be interdisciplinary, may focus on art and architectural history, music history, archeology, or related fields, from antiquity to the present. All projects must address the cultural histories of Naples as a center of exchange, encounter, and transformation, while making meaningful use of research materials in Naples and southern Italy including artworks, sites, archives, and libraries.
