History of Art @ York

On Friday 25 November the History of Art Department will be celebrating a brilliantly successful 2016. If you are considering applying for undergraduate or postgraduate study in 2017, we invite you to join us!

From 4pm, start your weekend with our information event at The King’s Manor in the heart of our historic city. Find out about our flexible, world-leading research-led programmes and how they will prepare you for a multitude of careers. Admissions staff, current students and representatives from various societies and services will be on-hand to answer your questions, so come and find out why we believe that York is the place to be!

Dr Janina Ramizez

Later, join us at The Yorkshire Museum for an informal drinks reception followed by a guest lecture from our Honorary Fellow, Dr Janina Ramirez. Janina will speak on Medieval Mysticism and the Universe in a Hazelnut, exploring a world of Medieval English Christian mysticism. Mystics Richard Rolle, 'The Cloud of Unknowing' author, and Julian of Norwich, looked beyond contemporary events like the Black Death and Papal Schism, to a world of spiritual enlightenment and communion with God.  Building on the research for her new book, Janina will reveal how these mystics are now more relevant and worthy of study than ever. 

There is no charge for this fantastic event, but prior registration is required. Please get in touch if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you!

While you are in York, take the time to get to know the city. A diverse range of shops, galleries, clubs, cafés, museums, music groups and sports clubs means that there really is something for everyone!
