ART HISTORY NEWS
Drawing on the formation of the Association for Art History in 1974 (formerly the Association of Art Historians) this podcast series explores the history of the organisation and its place within the development of Art History in Britain.
The Association of Art Historians held its first official meeting at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in 1974. It was open to all who were directly concerned with the advancement of the study of the history of art. Within one year over 500 art historians had joined the newly formed ‘AAH’.
But what exactly prompted the formation of the Association of Art Historians? Why was such an Association needed? How did it take shape? And what of its impact on the discipline, nationally and internationally, both then and now?
Voices in Art History explores these questions through a series of audio interviews conducted with art historians involved with AAH during its founding era. A 3-part podcast programme ‘Voices in Art History’, can be heard by clicking on the links below. This oral histories project was conceived and completed by Liz Bruchet between 2009-2011 as part of the Association for Art History’s 40th Anniversary programme.
