Art history is a dynamic field that explores the history of creativity in objects, sites, and spaces across the globe. Cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural in its methods, art history asks big questions about how humans visualize and inhabit the world. Our faculty comprise internationally renowned scholars and innovative teachers. Our students at all levels pursue a wide range of educational paths and careers, including museum work, arts and cultural management, and university teaching and research. Our building houses an exceptional art library, a collaborative digital media workshop, and the university’s art gallery.
Botany Hall: Dioramas in Context is a digital exhibition and collaborative research project co-created by Aisling Quigley, PhD Candidate in the School of Computing and Information, and Colleen O'Reilly, PhD Candidate in History of Art and Architecture.
