CALL FOR PAPERS | Formations: Current Practices and Debates in Art History and Visual Culture, Formations: Journal of Art History & Visual Culture vol. 1, no. 1

Formations begins, download our CFP for the inaugural issue.

Welcome to Formations: a scholarly and open-access journal founded and edited by doctoral students in the School of Art History at the University of St Andrews.

The journal’s mission is to provide a platform for innovative research in the field of art history and visual culture from the past to the present day. We are dedicated to highlighting new voices and perspectives on both familiar and yet unexplored issues in art. More specifically, we are interested in new voices and perspectives that dare to question existing narratives or rectify issues in the practice of art and art history. In engaging these perspectives, we look to spotlight conversations that shape the interpretation of art history and visual culture moving forward. The journal welcomes contributions from graduate students, early career, and established scholars. Stay tuned for our call for papers for our inaugural issue.
