History of Art

The department's academic staff are internationally renowned scholars in a range of topical fields. We provide a vibrant research environment and graduate students participate in our weekly postgraduate seminar, are invited to be part of the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art, Marxism in Culture as well as the Past Imperfect Seminar. Research students also write, edit and produce the peer-reviewed journal Object. We offer opportunities to research students to work as teaching assistants in the department. We have extensive interchanges with other art history departments in London and jointly organise ReSkin, an intercollegiate skills training and networking opportunity for research students, as well as shared seminars and public events. In addition to UCL's own Art Museum, the department is situated in close proximity to important museums, galleries and libraries such as the British Museum, the National Gallery or the British Library.
