CALL FOR ICMA SPONSORED SESSION PROPOSALS
ICMA @ International Medieval Congress at Leeds, 3-6 July 2017
The International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA) seeks proposals for sessions to be held under the organization’s sponsorship in 2017 at the International Medieval Congress (IMC) at Leeds, England.
Session organizers and speakers must be ICMA members. Proposals must include a session abstract, a CV of the organizer(s), and a list of speakers for a 90-minute session, all in one single Doc or PDF with the organizer’s name in the title. The IMC recommends three speakers and a moderator.
Please direct all session proposals and inquiries by 10 September 2016 to the Chair of the ICMA Programs and Lectures Committee: Janis Elliott, Texas Tech University. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The ICMA Programs and Lectures committee will select a session to sponsor and will notify the organizer(s) by 21 September 2016. The successful organizer(s) will then submit the ICMA-sponsored proposal by 30 September 2016 directly to the Leeds IMC Committee which will make the final decision: http://www.leeds.ac.uk/ims/imc/imc2017_call.html

Thanks to a generous grant from the Kress Foundation, funds may be available to defray travel costs of speakers in ICMA-sponsored sessions up to a maximum of $600 for domestic travel and of $1200 for international travel. If available, the Kress funds are allocated for travel and hotel only. Speakers in ICMA sponsored sessions will be refunded only after the conference, against travel receipts. In addition to speakers, session organizers delivering papers as an integral part of the session (i.e. with a specific title listed in the program) are now also eligible to receive travel funding.
