Call for ICMA Sponsored Session Proposals


The International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA) seeks proposals for sessions to be held under the organization’s sponsorship in 2017 at the International Congress on Medieval Studies (ICMS) at Kalamazoo. Session organizers and speakers must be ICMA members. Proposals must include a session abstract and a CV of the organizer(s), all in one single Doc or PDF with the organizer’s name in the title. 

No list of speakers need be attached at this time. Organizers will have the opportunity to send out a call for papers after the session selected by ICMA has been approved by the Congress Committee in July.

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.
