Object Lessons: Fifteen Years of Object: Graduate Research and Reviews in the History of Art and Visual Culture

21 and 22 June 2013

Object: Graduate Research and Reviews in the History of Art and Visual Culture
was established by research students in History of Art at UCL in 1998 and
continues to be produced entirely by students in the Department. Since its
founding, editors of and contributors to the journal have moved on to important
positions in the academy and other cultural institutions, in the UK and abroad.
On the occasion of its fifteenth issue, Object has invited distinguished
contributors to present current research and to reflect upon their experiences
since their involvement with the journal. Preparations to move the journal
on-line also offer the opportunity to discuss with previous authors developments
in the discipline’s institutional and pedagogical landscape and changing
conditions of publication. As Object nears the end of its second decade, its own
history allows for an interrogation of the field.

Speakers to include: Jo Applin (University of York), Andrew Brown (Art/Books Publishing), Warren Carter (UCL), Richard Clay (University of Birmingham), Catherine Clinger (College of the Atlantic), Mark Godfrey (Tate Modern), Nick Grindle (UCL), Barnaby Haran (Bristol University), Mary Hunter (McGill University), Klara Kemp-Welch (Courtauld Institute of Art), Ute Kuhlemann (Munch Museet, Oslo), Cadence Kinsey (UCL), Ed Krcma (University College Cork), Sergio Martins (Rio de Janeiro), Thomas Morgan-Evans (UCL), Gil Pasternak (De Montfort University), Harriet Riches (Kingston University), Sanjukta Sunderason (Leiden University), Wenny Teo (Courtauld Institute of Art), Sue Walker (UCL)
