Conferences and symposia
As a forum for research in art-historical and visual culture studies, we draw on a range of disciplines, within and beyond the university.
Through our integration with the Department of Cultural, Media and Visual Studies
we bring university staff and students together with other institutions, researchers, and research networks both nationally and internationally.
Upcoming conferences and symposia will appear here.
