We started the year with a selection of articles that made you think and see differently, including ‘Africa’s Medieval Art History’.
Selected articles in this issue reflected that it was LGBTQ history month, including ‘An Anthology of Queer Art Theory’.
MARCH & APRIL
Articles chosen for this joint issues reflected that March was Women’s History Month, and that in April our Annual Conference included keynote lectures by leading women art historians, Claire Bishop and Marcia Pointon.
In May we re-shared some of our most popular Spring social media posts, including ‘A Secret Feminist History’ and why ‘Decolonising and Diversifying are Different’.
In June we celebrated LGBTQ Pride month with a range of selected articles including ‘Stonewall’s Impact on Art & Art History’.
In July we considered the role of the museum, including articles that prompted thought around ‘Should Museums Bow to Repatriation Pressure’ and ‘Why and How we Should Decolonise Museums’.
We selected a number of longer reads, including Siri Hustvedt on ‘What is Art? And Other Questions’.
September means ‘back to school’, so this month we compiled articles about teaching and learning, including the brilliant ‘Teaching a more Ethical Art History: An Undergraduate Perspective’.
Brexit dominated October in the UK. In this newsletter we brought together articles that considered who and what shapes the space we live in through maps, borders and cartography.
Art, Architecture and Nature was the focus for this month, which coincided with the theme of our ‘Ways of Seeing’ conference.
This bumper issue includes some of our most popular social media posts of 2019. Including ‘Forgotten Women | The Artists’, ‘The Myth of Britain’s Empire’ and ‘Unicorns’.
