This interdisciplinary workshop will discuss the relationship between Art History and transnational history. Focusing on the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it will examine the nature and extent of cultural exchange across national boundaries, as it operated through the visual and other non-verbal arts. More generally, it will examine the contribution which Art History can make to transnational history by foregrounding visual evidence and techniques of visual interpretation; and it will discuss the implications of transnational history for Art History as a discipline.
The workshop will take place at King's Manor, the University of York, and will initiate a research network run jointly by the Departments of History of Art at York and at Bristol. The format will be based on open discussion, with short position papers from leading scholars. Speakers confirmed include Christopher Green, Elizabeth Prettejohn, Anna Gruetzner Robins and Rosalind P. Blakesley.
