As an affiliated society, HNA is entitled to submit one sponsored session proposal to the SECAC selection committee. This process is coordinated by HNA Board member, Arthur J. DiFuria. The session topic should represent the core interest of our membership (Northern European art ca. 1350-1750) and should highlight current issues and/or innovative research in our field. It should be specific enough to form a coherent panel, yet inclusive enough to encourage participation by HNA members with diverse research interests. This means a theme that is not restricted to a single artist, geographical region, or chronological period. All participants must be members ofHNA at the time of the conference. Session chair(s) and all participants must be members of SECAC, and are responsible for all costs related to participation in the conference. Sessions are scheduled for 1 hour and 45 minutes and may include as few as three speakers of 20 minutes each or at most five speakers of 15 minutes each. Please note that SECAC must approve the session.
Please send your session proposal (250 words max) and c.v. to Arthur J. DiFuria at firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 31, 2018.
SECAC is the Southeastern College Art Conference and membership organization
promoting the study and practice of the visual arts in higher education on a national basis. SECAC facilitates cooperation and fosters on-going dialog about pertinent creative, scholarly and educational issues among teachers and administrators in universities, colleges, community colleges, professional art schools, and museums; and among independent artists and scholars. Membership includes individuals and institutions from the original group of southeastern states that founded the conference: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Over the decades, however, SECAC has grown to include individual and institutional members from across the United States, becoming the second largest national organization of its kind.
