Conference Assistant

Overview

The Association for Art History is looking for Conference Assistants to support the successful delivery of the Association’s leading international Annual Conference, which will take place online 6 – 8 April 2022.

About the Association and the Annual Conference

We believe that art history inspires people to think differently and see differently. Since 1974 the Association for Art History has championed art history, visual culture and supported those engaged with it. The Association leads the collective effort in the UK to advance the study and professional practice of art history.  We connect those engaged with art history, and we advocate on behalf of the subject, stressing its importance in a well-rounded education and influencing relevant policy.

Through our programmes, networks, membership, grants and publications, we celebrate and promote the value of art history and visual culture today. We bring people together to share knowledge and inspire new ideas. We support and connect a broad art history community through our membership and activities. Together, we shape the future for art history.

The Annual Conference usually attracts around 600 attendees and involves a meticulously planned 3-day programme of parallel sessions and events that brings together hundreds of research papers and academics, researchers, curators, artists, writers and anyone engaged with art history and visual culture in the broadest sense. Traditionally it has been a popular and key event in the arts and humanities annual calendar. The Annual Conference includes a Book Fair and a Fringe Programme of events which run alongside the academic research sessions.
