Call for Papers

The AAANZ Annual Conference for 2022 is prompted by the idea of ‘DEMONSTRATIONS’

For some this might raise the idea of political advocacy in relation to Indigenous land rights, the global pandemic, climate crisis, and social injustice. For others it might provoke questioning of traditional demonstrations of art history: the exhibition, the catalogue, the curator, and physical artworks. For yet others it may evoke the idea of thinking through making and its connection to conceiving artistic practice as research. How might we re-conceive our disciplines in light of these concerns, and demonstrate our disciplinary role as advocates for re-thinking our histories, and engagement with communities, institutions, and other spaces?

The Call for Papers are now open from 3 June to 29 July. More information here:

PhD Prize

AAANZ is pleased to offer an opportunity for recently graduated PhD students to enter the AAANZ PhD Prize. The $1,000 prize is supported by Taylor and Francis.

From 2022 the format of the annual PhD prize will change. This follows a review by the AAANZ Prize Committee that took into consideration feedback received from former and potential entrants, academics and former members of the judging panel.

The AAANZ PhD Prize for 2022 (and subsequent years) will be judged on the merits of the final submitted thesis or exegesis and documentation.

Deadline: Friday 29 July 2022
