YSTI 2016: Art and Temporality

Monday 23 May 2016, 1.00PM to Fri 27 May 7pm

‌Designed for students undertaking postgraduate research, the second York Summer Theory Institute in Art History at the University of York (YSTI), Art and Temporality, will explore the ways in which the temporalities of the arts and their histories have been conceived in art history, visual culture, image studies, and related disciplines. Recent discussions of ‘multiple modernities’, of ‘revivals’ in the arts, of ‘anachronic’ histories and ‘anachronistic’ art histories, and of the need to study the ‘global modern’, ‘global medieval’, and/or ‘global ancient’ (not to speak of ‘global prehistory’) have reawakened critical, theoretical, and methodological interest in philosophies of history, time, and periodization.
