ART HISTORY NEWS
Why art history matters
This is why art history matters so much to us. As a charity, subject association and membership body, it is why we do the work that we do. Our work is united by a determination to show why art history matters, and how it can matter for many not just a few.
Our advocacy work is a key part of what we do towards promoting the professional practice and public understanding of art history and visual culture. At present it covers a range of areas including education, policy and partnerships.
Our internationally renowned Annual Conference showcases current research and critical debate around, art, art history and visual culture.
We have been awarding our annual Dissertation Prizes for over twenty years. They are designed to encourage and foster exceptional and original research around art and art history at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Our publications, including the leading academic journal, Art History and Thinking About Art text book, are for people teaching, studying or exploring art history at different levels in different contexts.
