- "Women, Femininity, and Public Space in Nineteenth Century Visual Culture." Chairs: Heather Belnap Jensen (Brigham Young University) and Temma Balducci, (Arkansas State University)
- "Sculpture and Race, 1750 to the Present." Chair: Linda Kim, Smith College
- "Representations of Brazil and Shifting Identities." Chairs: Aleca Le Blanc (University of Southern California); Elena Shtomberg (University of Utah). (*This session was MADE for me to attend! Why am I not going to be there?!?! I'm especially intrigued by Rebecca Parker Brienen's topic, "Frans Post's Brazilian Landscapes.")
- "Thinking about Colonial Latin American Art." Chair: Elizabeth Hill Boone, Tulane University. (*Again, this session perfectly aligns with my interests! Bah! I really wish I could hear "The Politics of Competing Visualities in Early Colonial Latin American Art" by Jeanette Favrot Peterson with Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann.)
- "'Classicisms,' 'Mannerisms' and 'Baroquisms': Sixteenth - and Seventeenth-Century Visual Culture in Europe and Other Cultural Centers." Chairs: Larry Silver (University of Pennsylvania) and Lynette M. F. Bosch, State University of New York, Genesco.
Are you going to CAA? What sessions will you/did you attend? Does anyone else have a wish list with no possibility of attendance (and want to commiserate with me)? I just hope that some of these lectures are recorded or later published. For now, though, it looks like I'll just be able to follow the conference blog so I can feel part of the action. Sigh.
