Association for Art History Conference 2020 | Representing the Nation

A worldwide call for proposals has been issued ahead of the Annual Conference of the Association for Art History 2020, where the National Galleries of Scotland will co-convene a session on the topic of Representing the Nation: The historic and continuing role of national art institutions.

The conference is an international forum for current research and critical debate about art, art history and visual culture. It offers over 30 sessions covering a range of topics, time periods and methodologies. Participating in the conference is an opportunity to engage with emerging fields of research, hear leading keynotes, broaden networks and exchange ideas. It attracts around 500 delegates, speakers and publishers each year.

The session to be co-convened by Freya Spoor, Assistant Curator, ‘Celebrating Scotland’s Art’ The Scottish National Gallery Project, and Neil Lebeter of the National Museum of Wales, will consider the historic and continuing role of national collections.
