CAA-Getty International Program

Since it began in 2012, the program has brought 120 scholars to the conferences, from forty-six countries located in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. Each year, a preconference colloquium on international topics in art history inaugurates the week, kicking off four days of conference sessions, meetings with new colleagues, and visits to museums and galleries. Subsequent to these events, the program has generated many scholarly collaborations, including publications, conferences, and exhibitions.

  • They must have a good working knowledge of English, be able to obtain a visa to travel to the United States, and be available to participate in CAA events.
  • Only professionals who have not attended a CAA conference previously, and who are from countries underrepresented in CAA’s membership are eligible to apply.
