CFP: Call for sessions for AAH conference (UCL London, 12-14 April 2023)

The Association for Art History’s Annual Conference brings together international research and critical debate about art history and visual culture. A key annual event, the conference is an opportunity to keep up to date with new research, hear leading keynotes, broaden networks and exchange ideas.

University College London, 12–14 April 2023
Submission deadline: 24 June 2022

The Annual Conference attracts around 500 attendees each year and is popular with academics, curators, practitioners, PhD students, early career researchers and anyone engaged with art history research. Members of the Association get reduced conference rates, but non-members are welcome to attend and propose sessions and papers.


The Annual Conference reflects the Association for Art History’s commitment to a broad and inclusive art history. We therefore strive for sessions, across all areas of research and practice, from the ancient to the contemporary, and which focus on practice outside of Europe and North America. In a 21st century facing multiple global challenges, the recognition and support of inter-sectional arts histories are of critical importance, and we therefore also welcome submissions that engage with race and gender, the environment, and social activism.

The 2023 Annual Conference is open to all, members and non-members of the Association for Art History. Anyone can submit a session proposal. Please include in your session proposal:

• Title of your session proposals
• Brief abstract (max 250 words)
• Name of session convenor(s)
• Affiliations (or if independent/freelance)
• Email of session convenors
• Social media accounts (optional)

Session proposal deadline: Friday 24 June 2022

Venue: University College London, 12–14 April 2023
