2018 Annual Conference

2018 Annual Conference
Courtauld Institute of Art & King's College London
5 – 7 April 2018

The 2018 Annual Conference for art history will be co-hosted by the Courtauld Institute of Art and King’s College London.

The close collaboration between the two institutions – involving numerous other museums and cultural partners in London – will set the tone for a conference oriented around ‘looking outwards’.

On one hand, we will be encouraging art historians and researchers to think about their disciplinary relationships with other affiliated subjects in the arts and humanities (as indeed beyond). On the other, we will be inviting new perspectives on international collaborations within the field (particularly important in the wake of recent political events...).

We aim to incorporate an ambitious range of perspectives – from university academics and doctoral researchers, to educators, curators, heritage partners, and not least artists themselves. We hope to deliver an event with the widest possible remit and reach.

Sessions

The 2018 Annual Conference aims to host around 30 academic sessions, over 3 days (approx. 10 sessions each day). Each one-day session will generally consist of between 4 – 8 papers (minimum 4, maximum 8); papers are usually 25-minutes, presented in 35-minute slots to allow for questions and movement between sessions. We will also accommodate alternative session formats – such as world-cafe, round-table or open discussions. 

Sessions will respond to the idea of ‘looking outwards' by engaging with art history in the broadest sense, and incorporating a diverse range of papers and perspectives.
