International Desk

Welcome to CAA’s International Desk!

With this new web page, CAA applauds and supports the growing internationalization of our organization. Whether in the fields of art history, visual arts, design, visual culture, or museums, CAA members are increasingly working as scholars, artists, or curators beyond borders and across the globe. This new page on the CAA website, launched by the CAA International Committee, is in recognition of the growing number of international scholars who have joined our organization as a result of the CAA-Getty International Program and in recognition of CAA members’ participation in the arts, design, and museum fields globally.  

The International Desk’s editorial goal is to provide a site for all CAA members to access news on global topics such as recent scholarship (summaries or descriptions), current issues in teaching and research, scholarly- and practice-based collaborations across borders, and international exhibition reviews of interest. Our goal is to expand content sources with news from our membership-at-large as this page develops.

We hope you find our inaugural stories of interest and look forward to future submissions from throughout CAA’s membership. The only criterion is that the topic be international in scope. Please send proposals for articles to Janet Landay at jlanday@collegeart.org.

South African Diary

Twenty-two years after the end of apartheid, South Africa, and especially its university system, is in an enormous state of flux. Since March 2015, students have militated against South Africa’s twenty-three government-funded universities in two related protests, Rhodes Must Fall and Fees Must Fall. This was the context for the 31st Annual Conference of the South African Visual Arts Historians (SAVAH), which I had the pleasure of attending this past summer.

“William Kentridge’s Project for the City of Rome”

Rome’s Tiber embankments have been receiving an eye-catching mural makeover in the past few weeks, as a series of large-scale figures, up to ten meters in height, take shape as a century of pollution and biological patina is slowly power washed from the travertine walls.

Going Back

In 2014, I received an email saying I had been awarded a travel grant to attend the upcoming CAA Annual Conference.
