Venues

Central Campus

Content

This programme invites you to join one of the largest and most diverse concentrations of medieval, renaissance and early modern art historical expertise in the UK. Together, we will uncover neglected narratives and scrutinise assumptions that have often served as the foundations of art historical scholarship.

This programme aims to diversify art history, revealing meaningful connections and shared concerns by embracing a breadth of theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches to objects from across the world. You will cover a period from the third to the seventeenth century, with a far-reaching geographical scope, including:
the British Isles; the Mediterranean; Latin America; the Middle East and North Africa; India, China and Japan.

You will also study cultures from Christian to Islamic and Hindu to Buddhist.
