CONSULTATIONS

The Association for Art History leads the collective effort in the UK to advance the study and practice of art history. We serve members from within and outside of the UK and represent the interests of art historians, members and non-members alike. We publish the highly respected journal, Art History, a leading international publication in this field.

Below, we have included some recent consultations in which the AAH has participated.
