AAH Conference 2021

The Annual Conference brings together international research and critical debate about art, art history and visual cultures. This key annual event is an opportunity to keep up to date with new research, hear leading keynotes, broaden networks and exchange ideas.



The Annual Conference reflects the Association for Art History’s commitment to a broad and inclusive art history for all. The AAH conference therefore strive for a broad and inclusive range of sessions, across all areas of research and practice, including Medieval, Early Modern, and research that focuses on practice outside of Europe and North America.

Their 2021 Annual Conference in Birmingham aims to draw out the latest international research and debates within art history, curating and visual studies that will set the agenda for future scholarship in these diverse but inter-related fields. He AAH is particularly interested in sessions that work across established boundaries, be they disciplinary, geographical or conceptual. They encourage session proposals that will invite broad paper proposals.

In keeping with the department’s reputation for research-led teaching, they also welcome sessions that explore issues of pedagogy and historiography in art and curating histories. Sessions that explore and debate the role of regional centres within art-historical and curating discourses are equally welcomed.
