2020 Annual Conference

Co-hosted by Northumbria University and Newcastle University 

In 2020, Newcastle University and Northumbria University will co-host the Association for Art History’s 46th Annual Conference. The 2020 Annual Conference will be held across both campuses in the city centre and will include many opportunities to explore the vibrant cultural landscape of the North East of England. In addition to academic sessions and research papers, we anticipate that the 2020 Annual Conference will include a mix of events including artists’ film screenings, performances, round table discussions, and site visits.

Call for Papers

Both universities have firm roots in the studio practice of art and we especially welcome session proposals from practitioners and researchers whose work engages with questions around making and doing and the relationship between theory, history, and practice. Newcastle and Northumbria trace different histories through the nineteenth-century art department and mid-twentieth-century polytechnic college, which prompts us to consider the evolution of art education and its intersections with other disciplines, including cultural studies, design, film, and fashion.

More Information and Submission

For more information on session format, submitting a session proposal and conference registration please visit the main conference site at the Association for Art History web-pages.
