The Department of Art History consists of eleven faculty members whose specializations include the art of the Americas, Asia, and Europe, from antiquity through contemporary times. We are a methodologically and theoretically diverse department, and each year our permanent faculty is enriched with numerous affiliated and visiting professors, including museum curators and postdoctoral fellows.
