Circulaire #31

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are seeking proposals for the EPCAF sponsored panel at the 2018 College Art Association meeting, which will take place in Los Angeles.


If you are interested in chairing the EPCAF panel please send us an email by December 15. At that point it does not need to be a formal proposal, just a description of what you would like to do in the framework of that EPCAF panel.


The EPCAF counselors will select the panel we will endorse. The chair(s) of the selected panel will then submit an official proposal to CAA, along with a letter of support from EPCAF. As an affiliated society, we are guaranteed a panel at the yearly CAA meeting.


We look forward to receiving your proposals. In the meantime, you will find below our usual list of announcements.
