The 37th AAH Annual Conference & Bookfair
University of Warwick
31 March - 2 April 2011
AAH2011 aimed to showcase the diversity and richness of art history in the UK and elsewhere: we looked for an extensive chronological range from ancient to contemporary (with a healthy dose in the middle). We invited sessions that were geographically inclusive of Western Europe and the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. We also wanted to ensure that we had a full range of methodologies on offer ranging from object-based studies, socio-historical analyses, theoretical discourses, visual culture of the moving image, exhibition cultures and display. We particularly welcomed anthropological and archaeological approaches to the History of Art. The sessions were also selected to reflected the composition of our wide constituency – independent or academic researchers (including students) and museum curators.
