Culture, Capital, Collaboration: Towards a new educational exchange

Session Convenor:

Trevor Horsewood, Association for Art History

Session Abstract:

This parallel session acts as a platform for a range of curated conversations around the current and emerging challenges and opportunities for art history in different learning contexts. It builds on conversations started in the 2018 Annual Conference Critical Pedagogies session, reflects on the work of the Association for Art History to increase engagement and educational opportunities, and sets out a manifesto for change for the coming years. Dissent, disadvantage and dogma act as narrative threads across the session, which aims to open up new dialogues about art history in education and the wider public realm.

Structure: Discursive/roundtable. Presenter ‘provocations/presentations’ intended to generate conversation about the challenges and opportunities for art history, particularly with respect to cultural learning settings.
