Research is at the heart of our activities.
The History of Art Department at York is an internationally recognised centre for research and study in art and architectural history. Established as recently as 2001, we have quickly expanded to more than twenty full-time members of academic staff. Our staff regularly publish their research and full details of these publications and activities can be found in the staff profiles. Announcements about new publications by staff in the History of Art Department are also made on the Publication News page.
Staff also contribute to exhibitions, events, performances and media activities around the world.
We have an excellent record of attracting external funding and prizes from the British Academy, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust and other funding bodies.
Many of our PhD and postdoctoral students are also recipients of external funding for their research.
Our research schools frequently host seminars, lectures, conferences and other events. For more information see:
