Membership & Benefits

Becoming an AAH member provides a platform from which one can share, widen and maximise research and ideas, and enables conversation at an institutional and organisational level. 

Join the Conversation
AAH Membership is open to all professional art historians, researchers and students, as well as to those with an active interest in and commitment to art history and visual culture. Annual membership runs for 12 months from the date of activation. Members can renew online within 30 days of membership expiring. After 30 days members will need to re-join online (this is simply to do with how our database stores data).

Joining or renewing online? - then you will need your username - this is usually your email address, and your password (which you create).

In order that you can access your membership profile records must be kept up to date, so please let us know if your email changes, or update it yourself.
