The Future of the National Committee of the History of Art
December 3 - 4, 2010
The National Committee of the History of Art (NCHA) passed its thirtieth anniversary as an independent organization in 2010. In this colloquium a number of colleagues gathered to reflect on the leadership role of the NCHA in creating stronger global networks among scholars who are shaping the practice of art history in the United States, and the NCHA's relationship to such organizations as the US-based College Art Association (CAA) and the Comite International d'Histoire de l'Art (CIHA), in these endeavors. This colloquium was supported with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Participants included: Rick Asher (University of Minnesota and President of the NCHA) convener, Michael Conforti (The Clark), Nicola Courtright (Amherst College), Elizabeth Cropper (National Gallery of Art), Thomas Gaehtgens (The Getty Research Institute), Marc Gotlieb (Williams College), Michael Ann Holly (The Clark), Paul Jaskot (DePaul University), Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann (Princeton University), Max Marmor (Samuel H. Kress Foundation), Steven Nelson (University of California-Los Angeles), Ruth Phillips (Carleton University), David Roxburgh (Harvard University), Joan Weinstein (The Getty Foundation), Mariet Westermann (The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation), Gerhard Wolf (Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence)
