Object is a journal produced entirely by graduate students in the History of Art Department at University College London. The contents of each edition represent the diversity of issues and methodologies with which graduate students in the department are currently engaged. Drawing upon object and theory-based analyses, the studies within Object indicate a continual questioning and renegotiation of meaning in the visual arts.
As with previous editions, the essays and reviews included represent the wide range of historical and theoretical concerns of our current research students. Object made the move on online, open access publication in 2015, with the intention to distribute content as widely as possible, increasing readership and public engagement via the department’s growing digital platform.
We welcome feedback about this website or about Object. Please contact us with any comments or suggestions. Similarly, individual authors are happy to engage in more specific dialogue either by email or post.
