The Department of Art History, Curating and Visual Studies has a thriving research community with staff and postgraduate students engaged in many areas of research from the Middle Ages to the present day, including manuscript studies, Renaissance architecture and painting, gender studies, visual cultures of France and Germany, historiography, film theory, aesthetics and European cinema. For information about staff research and expertise, visit here, and for postgraduate research in the department, it’s here.
Undergraduates are also involved in independent research, notably through their dissertation module. In addition, the department has been successful in obtaining University Undergraduate Research Scholarships which allow UGs to work closely with an academic on a particular research project. You can read about Charlotte Flint’s experience of working with Matthew Rampley and Kate Ince on the Nazarene painters here and Holly Wain’s experience of working with Elizabeth L’Estrange on an illuminated manuscript here.
