New Dialogues in Art History

A seminar group for postgraduate art historians

Organised by PhD students Lydia Goodson and Genevieve Verdigel.

Art history has been at the core of The Warburg Institute since its foundation, and some of the most significant art historical research of the past century has originated at the Institute. This seminar series aims to continue this tradition by opening dialogues among the next generation of art historians. The purpose is to provide a platform for art history researchers to present and to discuss their work in a supportive environment. Seminars are open to doctoral researchers in art history from any institution. There are one or two twenty-minute papers per session, and a further twenty minutes for round-table discussion. The format is informal and is intended to encourage constructive feedback from peers.

Research students are invited to present papers that focus on any art historical aspect, time period or topic. There is an open call for papers throughout the academic year.

Submit a paper to this seminar.
