Call for Papers

We invite papers of 15-20 minutes (approx. 2500 words) on an issue related to the conference theme. Papers should be presentable and come accompanied with visual aids (i.e. slide projections, PowerPoint, etc.). Papers can be excerpts from larger works or separate pieces, but must have a strong thesis and be well evidenced with primary and secondary material. We ask for papers that show a high degree of independent thinking and may discuss any period in the art historical timeline. We welcome papers that take religious and/or historical approaches just as much as those that explore the theme in a literal and/or a postmodern framework.

Students interested in presenting at this year’s conference need to submit an abstract (max. 250 words) to Conference Chair by email: by Thursday January 25th, 2018. Please include HASA Conference as your subject line. Everything should be in a single attachment as a document or pdf file. In your proposal, you should make sure to include: your name, university, course and year of study as of January 2018, your paper’s title (or working title) and your abstract.

Acceptance, Conference Program and Accommodation:

Acceptance emails will be sent out after the 25th of January deadline and before February 1st, 2018. A full program will be available and emailed to the speakers once decisions have been finalized. It will also be posted on our website: Unfortunately, the organizers are unable to provide accommodation for participants attending the conference.
