The Warburg Institute is the premier institute in the world for the study of cultural history and the role of images in culture. It is cross-disciplinary and global. It is concerned with the histories of art and science, and their relationship with superstition, magic and popular beliefs. Its researches are historical, philological and anthropological. It is dedicated to the study of the survival and transmission of cultural forms – whether in literature, art, music or science – across borders and from the earliest times to the present. In setting out the historical, psychological, anthropological and political dimensions of art and culture, the work of Aby Warburg underlines the continuing relevance of the humanities today.

Studying at the Warburg Institute provides access to scholars and Fellows of the highest calibre in professional and research terms. Contact hours and consultation with academic staff is one of the most favourable to be found in any academic institution. There is also the advantage of access to the Warburg Library, one of the world’s finest, as well as the Photographic Collection and Warburg Institute Archive. Lectures are friendly and intimate, and there is a constant flow of academics of international standing through our doors, as well as regular scholarly conferences, seminars and events which attract the larger academic community.

The Warburg Institute offers doctoral research supervision in the following broad areas:

  • Art History, visual and material culture
  • Cultural and Intellectual History
  • Humanism and the history of scholarship
  • Renaissance philosophy and the history and transmission of ideas
