Department of the History of Art and Architecture Research

The Department of the History of Art and Architecture (HA&A) is home to a rich variety of faculty research interests in the history, theory, and criticism of visual and material culture from antiquity to the present day. HA&A is especially well-known for its focus on the art and architecture of the Pacific Rim—the Americas and East Asia in particular—as well as the Mediterranean world. In addition to these regional foci, the department currently has faculty research clusters in urbanism and architecture; modern and contemporary art; and museum and curatorial studies.

We welcome graduate students in all areas of art and architectural history.
