Workshop: The Future of Studying Old Art
Venue: Birkbeck Cinema, School of Arts, 43-46 Gordon Square
Booking details: Free entry; booking required
This workshop explores the continued relevance of studying the art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in a cultural climate where the humanities have been downgraded, and art history labelled elitist. With contributions from teachers, scholars, curators and broadcasters, we aim to think broadly about how we study, teach and communicate ideas about 'old' art, in order to challenge established discourses in the discipline, engage with a wider audience, and make connections between past and present.
