At York, researchers collaborate across the University's seven interdisciplinary research themes to address the great scientific, social and environmental challenges of our times.
Our department has particularly strong partnerships within two themes: Culture and Communication and Creativity.
Culture and Communication
Our researchers explore many forms of cultural expression including architecture, sculpture, fashion and interior design. We shed light on how these art forms communicated and influenced the cultures of a diverse range of periods and places.
As well as exploring forms of artistic creativity, we apply our creativity to disseminating our work. We are active in curating innovative exhibitions, while our innovative use of digital technologies brings 'lost' artworks back to life for new audiences to experience.
