Activating Art History: Funding Art History

Research Lunch

  • 18 May 2021
  • 3:00 – 4:00 pm
  • Zoom Webinar

Activating Art History is a series of panel discussions with curators, scholars, academics and authors who have all contributed to the study of British art history through the Paul Mellon Centre fellowships & grants scheme.

The aim of these sessions is to give insight into the many ways in which British art history research can be activated through exhibitions, books, digital projects and more. It is hoped that as well as being engaging and insightful, these sessions will also provide practical advice for those wishing to activate their own research.

A panel of representatives from art history funding bodies join the Paul Mellon Centre’s Harriet Fisher to explore opportunities for funding art history research and how to successfully apply for these. Each speaker will give a short presentation before questions are invited by the audience.
