About the AAH Conference & Bookfair

Bringing together eminent scholars and emerging voices in art history and visual culture.
The AAH Annual Conference and Bookfair is a UK-based event that takes place at a different institution each year. These prominent, international events take place over three days and attract up to 600 delegates, speakers and publishers. A busy and varied 3-day programme packs in over two-hundred papers, keynote lectures, special interest sessions, excursions, networking and much more.

AAH conferences are highly regarded within the art historical community and more broadly. We encourage and support a diverse academic programme, and pride ourselves on the consistently high standard of sessions and papers selected for these events.  

The AAH works in partnership with the host venue and organising commitee towards realising a successful and memorable event. The AAH conference is different each year, which is one of its greatest assets. 

If your institution is interested in hosting an AAH conference, or would like to find out more please email the AAH Office.
