Event description

Description

This workshop explores the continued relevance of studying the art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in a cultural climate where the humanities have been downgraded, and art history labelled elitist. With contributions from teachers, scholars, curators and broadcasters, we aim to think broadly about how we study, teach and communicate ideas about 'old' art, in order to challenge established discourses in the discipline, engage with a wider audience, and make connections between past and present.

  • Robert Maniura (Birkbeck)
  • Peta Motture (V&A)
  • Rose Aidin (Art History Link-up)
  • Peter Maniura (BBC)
  • Chair: Dorigen Caldwell (Birkbeck)

This event forms part of our year-long celebration marking the fiftieth anniversary of the Department of History of Art at Birkbeck - see the full programme of activities for 2017/18 here.
