ARCE 2017 Annual Meeting


ARCE’s 68th Annual Meeting will take place in Kansas City, Missouri, April 21-23, 2017 at the Intercontinental at the Plaza Hotel. The hotel is located on Ward Parkway, a wide, manicured boulevard, that traverses the historic Country Club District running south from the Country Club Plaza, the first suburban shopping district in the United States. The Country Club district also includes many homes by noted architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright; McKim, Mead, and White; Louis Curtiss; and Mary Rockwell Hook. Several homes are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is one of the premier art museums in the U.S., offering free admission to its extensive collections of Asian, European, American, and ancient art.


The call for papers is now closed.

A double-blind vetting process was employed; neither reviewers nor submitters were informed of one another’s identities. Notification about paper/poster/panel acceptance was sent out by email on February 3.
