The UCL History of Art Society (@uclhoas) is a communal space for students with similar interests in arts and culture to come together in a welcoming environment.
My name is Yige. I am a third year History of Art student and the president of History of Art Society. My current research focuses on European religious paintings during the Protestant Reformation. Engaging both visual and doctrinal materials, I investigate the tensions and paradoxes between Christian theology and iconology. I enjoy adopting modern methods such as feminist theories and gender studies in my research, to synthesise the historical past and the present into a coherent whole, enabling a critical reciprocity within historical dialogues. I love reading ancient moral philosophy, political theories, Catholic and Protestant theology, and analytic philosophy.
The UCL History of Art Society (@uclhoas) is a communal space for students with similar interests in arts and culture to come together in a welcoming environment of social activities, subject-related events and networking opportunities. It is our ambition to offer exceptional experiences, such as curator’s tours, talks with art world professionals and career-focused behind-the-scenes glimpses, to students in the department and beyond. We also aim to foster a sense of community and do so by offering a widespread programme, catering to all interests within the arts and creating a space for pressure-free exchange.
Come along and join us for our next event, we would be happy to have you!
