YSTI 2015: Art History and the Parameters of Image Studies

Monday 8 June 2015, 1.00PM to Fri 12 June 7pm

Designed for students undertaking postgraduate research, the first York Summer Theory Institute in Art History at the University of York (YSTI), Art History and the Parameters of Image Studies, will explore the relationships between art history as a discipline (an array of propositions and practices related to an array of objects and evidence) and the relatively recent consolidation of an inter- or trans-disciplinary ‘image studies’, identified in some measure with the work of leading French and German art historians and theorists as well as with ‘visual-culture studies’ in the UK and North America.
