Just a note regarding a CAA panel that might be of interest to this network. The panel, "The Spectacle in Art from the Panorama to the Infinity Room" examines the relationship between visual art and the concept of "spectacle" specifically as it was defined by Guy Debord. I will give a paper entitled "Monumental Art Against Concentrated Spectacle: Soviet Murals as Catalysts for Collectivist Politics, 1928-1968". Date, time, and location are as follows:

Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous donor, the Society is pleased to announce the SHERA Graduate Student / Independent Scholar Travel Grant of up to $1,000 for local travel and up to $1,500 for international travel to one member presenting a paper at the CAA Annual Conference or the ASEEES Annual Convention.
Last year at the Annual Conference in Los Angeles, CAA offered Idea Exchange, a series of roundtable talks on a variety of topics led by leaders in the field. The talks are less formal than a session at the conference and are meant to address topics for discussion and open dialogue.
Idea Exchange will be offered again this year at the 2019 CAA Annual Conference and the submission portal is now open. CAA is looking for Idea Exchange topic leaders and ideas for talks.
Posted on behalf of SHERA President Eva Forgacs:
Please note that SHERA's Business Meeting at the 2019 CAA annual meeting in New York will take place on Friday, February 15, 12:30-1:30pm in the Madison Suite.
The CAA-Getty International Program, generously supported by the Getty Foundation, provides funding to between fifteen and twenty art historians, museum curators, and artists who teach art history to attend CAA’s Annual Conferences. The goal of the project is to increase international participation in CAA, to diversify the association’s membership, and to foster collaborations between North American art historians, artists, and curators and their international colleagues.
