Welcome to the History of Art Department Website
Welcome to History of Art
Here you will find information about the people who comprise the Department – faculty and graduate students – with descriptions of our fields of research. Also featured are listings of many student- and faculty-organized events. We are an intellectual community committed to studying art made by all people in many media everywhere at all times. Central to all we do is a commitment to Diversity of people, ideas, and works of art. In April 2021, the Department’s faculty and graduate students voted to adopt a Diversity Statement that was jointly authored through a process of open collaboration between all members of the community. This dynamic statement reflects current thinking and initiatives and is revised and updated annually.
Our Commitment to Diversity
The Department of the History of Art commits to building a diverse and welcoming community in which all members are valued and supported equally. We strive to cultivate mutual understanding within our community, as well as to support faculty and students who revitalize the Department by challenging the assumptions of our field and institution. We embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and anti-racism as core values of our practice, and we actively oppose all forms of discrimination.
