The conference program features four days of presentations and panel discussions exploring art history and visual culture from ancient times to the present. It also offers an array of career- development workshops, mentoring opportunities, and prospects for job interviews with colleges, universities, and museums, and more. Providing an arena for intellectual, aesthetic, and professional exchange, the Annual Conference helps fulfill CAA’s mission of promoting excellence in scholarship and practice, the freedom of expression, and inclusiveness.
