Frequently dismissed as non-existent, the relationship between the visual arts and science is a subject which has received considerable attention in recent scholarship. The upcoming Postgraduate conference hosted by the History of Art Department at the University of York intends to engage in this centuries-long debate as to how these fields interact, compliment, and complicate one another.

We invite papers from Postgraduates across all disciplines that explore some element of visual art and science from c.1800. Please see the attached call for papers for more details, or contact us at if you have any queries.

Best wishes,
Kirstin Donaldson and Robert Sutton
