new dialogues imageThis one day conference brings together the next generation of art history scholars to present and discuss their ongoing research. Papers will predominately focus on Italian and Northern Renaissance Art (c.1400–1600) and will encompass diverse media including tapestry, painting, engraving and stained glass.

The conference will comprise five sessions.In the first four, two PhD students (or recent graduates) will present on topics that are united by common themes such as patronage, attribution and materiality. The final session, entitled ‘Opening New Dialogues’, will feature a paper by Professor Michelle O’Malley (Deputy Director and former PhD student at The Warburg). In order to foster the intellectual exchange central to ‘New Dialogues in Art History’, the key paper(s) of each session will be followed by 20 minutes discussion.
