RESOURCE PORTAL ON ANTI-RACISM AND DECOLONIAL APPROACHES TO ART HISTORY AND VISUAL CULTURE

This portal contains hundreds of references arranged along subject, themes and media in eight bibliographies.  It provides access to materials on anti-racist, postcolonial and decolonising art histories and is meant for anyone conducting research in those areas in art history or in visual or spatial culture.  It is also meant to support academics in making meaningful change in their departments, their teaching and their research.

In this initial iteration, the resource comprises distinct pdf bibliographies.  It will soon take the form of an interactive library where readers can submit their own contributions to refresh the material over time making and insuring its ongoing relevance.  To that end we encourage members of our community to contribute to an annotated bibliography and/or to add bibliographic references via the linked forms. Please return your completed forms to info@forarthistory.org.uk.

Here are the pdf versions of the eight bibliographies for you to download and share:

The resource portal was conceived and initiated by members of the Association’s Higher Education Committee and supported by contributions from a crowd funding initiative.  It was guided by Amy Tobin, Curator, Contemporary Programmes, Kettles Yard and Lecturer, Department of Art History, University of Cambridge and Joanna Woodall, Professor, Courtauld Institute of Art and was compiled by Edwin Coomasaru.
