We invite proposals for participation in a conference celebrating the 25th anniversary of HECAA (Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture). There are many ways to participate: by submitting a paper abstract for a research panel or the early-career scholarship showcase, a proposal for a roundtable, or an application to serve as facilitator for a breakout session. Panel descriptions and guidelines for how to apply can be found at: https://www.smu.edu/Meadows/AreasOfStudy/ArtHistory/Conferences
