Call for ICMA Sponsored Session Proposals
ICMA @ INTERNATIONAL MEDIEVAL CONGRESS AT LEEDS, 1-4 July 2019
The International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA) seeks proposals for sessions to be held under the organization’s sponsorship in 2019 at the International Medieval Congress (IMC) at Leeds, England.
While session proposals on any topic related to the art of the Middle Ages are welcome, the IMC also chooses a theme for each conference. In 2019– the theme is ‘Materialities’. For more information on the Leeds 2019 congress and theme, see: https://www.leeds.ac.uk/ims/imc/imc2019_call.html
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, all in one single Doc or PDF with the organizer’s name in the title.
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 (within Europe) travel and of $1200 for transatlantic 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.
Please direct all session proposals (with a slate of papers) and inquiries by 14 September 2018 to the Chair of the ICMA Programs and Lectures Committee: Beth Williamson, University of Bristol, UK (firstname.lastname@example.org)
