Hear more about our new publications

Please join us for our winter Book Night, where we will celebrate our latest publications by asking authors to discuss their research and answer questions about their books.

This event will take place online with an introduction by the Centre’s Director of Studies, Mark Hallett. Guests will be able to hear short presentations by each of the night’s five authors, which we hope will give a lively and engaging snapshot of the exciting new research that we have recently published.

Confirmed authors taking part in PMC Book Night:

Thomas Crow, author of The Hidden Mod in Modern Art: London 19571969

Melody Barnett Deusner, author of Aesthetic Painting in Britain and America: Collectors, Art Worlds, Networks
