ALAA Article Award

Competition for the 2019 ALAA Article Award

The Association for Latin American Art, an affiliate of the College Art Association, announces its First Annual Article Award for a distinguished scholarly article on any aspect of Latin American/Latinx art, architecture, or visual culture, of any period from the Pre-Columbian era to the present, published in a peer reviewed journal, edited volume, or exhibition catalogue during the previous year. The award consists a $500 honorarium and will be presented at the ALAA business meeting at the annual meeting of the College Art Association in February 2019. The name of the recipient will appear in the newsletters of both ALAA and CAA.

For the February 2019 Award, we will evaluate articles that meet the following criteria:

  • Publication date between September 1, 2017 and August 31, 2018.
  • Essays may be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.

Essays will be evaluated by a three-person committee of accomplished art historians, each with expertise in a wide geographical and temporal range. For consideration, authors should send their articles as a pdf to the Chair of the ALAA article award committee no later than November 15, 2018. Peer nominations will also be accepted.
