Mission | AMCA | Association for Modern + Contemporary Art of the Arab World, Iran + Turkey



The Association for Modern and Contemporary Art of the Arab world, Iran, and Turkey (AMCA) is a private, non-profit, non-political, international organization. An affiliate organization of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) and the College Art Association (CAA), AMCA aims to advance the study of this emerging field through the creation of a network of interested scholars and organizations. We will facilitate communication and cooperation among those in the field by sponsoring conferences, holding meetings, and exchanging information via a newsletter and website.

AMCA is a member-based, professional organization.

Our Site

AMCA’s website is an online portal and network of resources for academics, researchers, and students dedicated to the study of visual arts. We encourage all members and visitors to engage in sharing ideas, in critical debate, in offering peer support and in developing this emerging field. We welcome additions to our “News” page, featuring a list of conferences, calls for papers, and other opportunities.  Send entries to info@amcainternational.org.

We also encourage members to subscribe to the H-AMCA moderated e-mail list maintained under the auspices of H-Net. For information about the list and how to subscribe, go here: http://www.h-net.org/~amca/  We circulate many up-to-date announcements about events, exhibitions, upcoming conferences, and other calls for papers will be circulated through this H-AMCA list.
