Department of Art History

Work in Progress seminars

The weekly research seminars provide an opportunity for staff and students studying Art History at all levels to come together and listen to current research by leading scholars from the UK and abroad.

You can attend our Art History Work in Progress Seminars, which are held weekly during term time, normally on Tuesdays, in room 108 of the Arts A building on Sussex campus (BN1 9SH).

All are welcome and no booking is required.
