College Arts Association 2017 Annual Meeting Conference Guide

The Oxford Art team is excited to see you in our hometown of New York City for the upcoming 2017 College Arts Association’s Annual Conference! With so much to look forward to at this conference, we’ve gathered some suggestions from Oxford attendees. Wondering what to see and do while you’re in the city? We’ve got you covered.

Alodie Larson, Editorial:

I look forward to CAA to see old friends and to hear about new research.  CAA sessions on pedagogy help me align content development with teaching needs, and I’m interested in digital humanities projects that relate information in new ways.  I work with scholarship in print and online, so I’m looking forward to a session on Art History in Digital Dimensions as well as to one on the other end of the spectrum called Why Print?

Sarah Pirovitz, Editorial:

CAA is always a lovely conference! I look forward to catching up with both longtime and new authors here every year. For those looking to grab a glass of wine with friends, I warmly recommend Sofia’s on East 50th as a cozy alternative not too far from the conference hub.

John Priest, Marketing:

This will be my first time at CAA! I’m looking forward to meeting our authors and chatting about their interests, current projects, and upcoming events (and hopefully catching a session or two at the conference). For those with spare time visiting NYC, I recommend checking out Neue Galerie’s upcoming Alexei Jawlensky retrospective—the first in the US!
