The Society of Contemporary Art Historians (SCAH) aims to foster strong scholarship and to promote collegiality within the vital field of contemporary art history. Major projects include reading groups, mentoring and career development (especially for younger scholars and graduate students), a standing panel at the College Art Association’s annual conference, and the distribution of relevant information through the Society’s website. SCAH was founded in 2007 as an affiliate society of the College Art Association.
