October 15- 17 octobre, 2020

Co-organized by SFU, UBC and the UAAC Board of Directors

Appel de propositions de séances révisé | Revised Call for Session Proposals

We are pleased to announce that the 2020 UAAC-AAUC Conference will be held online. While we regret that we won’t have the opportunity to welcome you in Vancouver, we hope you will join us for what promises to be a stimulating weekend of panels, roundtables, workshops and plenaries, including two live keynote addresses featuring artist Stan Douglas and art historian Charmaine Nelson.

 Due to these changes, the call for session proposals has been extended to June 1. Panels, roundtables, and workshops are invited that reflect the diversity of UAAC’s membership and scholarship, including historical and contemporary art history, visual and material culture, creative studio practice, design practice, theory and criticism, pedagogy, and museum and gallery practice. We particularly welcome sessions that focus on areas that have not been strongly represented at previous UAAC conferences, such as Indigenous scholarship and practices, scholars, artists/theorists dealing with race(ism), immigration, and diaspora. Exceptionally this year, we invite proposals for pre-constituted panels, roundtables and/or workshops that address issues of BIPOC representation, equity, and diversity.

Proposals (which can be in English, French or an Indigenous language) should include a title, a 150-word description of the session, and full contact information for the session chair/s. The deadline for submission to is June 1, 2020.

Only members of UAAC-AAUC may chair or co-chair and/or present papers in conference sessions. Non-members who propose sessions will be required to become members in the event that their proposals are accepted.

We welcome proposals from permanent and contractual academic staff, independent scholars, artists and curators, and graduate students in terminal degree programs. Sessions that include a mixture of graduate students and faculty/independent researchers are also encouraged.

Please note that only ONE proposal will be accepted per member, whether that proposal is for a single or jointly chaired panel, roundtable or workshop.

We invite you to visit the UAAC website at to find out about the conference and membership.

REVISED SUBMISSION DATE: Please submit proposals using the attached form to Fran Pauzé, at by June 1, 2020.

A receipt will be sent for all proposals received. If you do not receive a receipt please contact the UAAC-AAUC office.
