AAH2016 will engage with current art historical scholarship in exciting and innovative ways, across a range of periods, locations, and media. Academic Sessions will cross disciplinary boundaries. They will, for instance, explore relationships between the visual and the textual, between fashion and art history, between art and architecture, between art and economics, or between art and science.
Other sessons will highlight issues of time and periodisation, exploring revivalism, re-enactment, and extinction. Or highlight advancing technologies and media, including video games and cybernetics.
AAH 2016 also presents an opportunity to reflect on nationalism and its conflicts and
contradictions in the past and present, as well as opening the discipline of art history up to broader audiences.
