Art History is interdisciplinary
Art History encompasses a study of sexuality, race and gender, business and economics, politics, culture and society. It depends on a vast array of theories and methods. What makes our department exciting and fairly unique is that professors’ research and the courses they offer explore a genuinely wide scope of topics and allow students to benefit from a broad understanding of what constitutes art in both historical and contemporary contexts.
We would like to begin by acknowledging that Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtià:ke/Montréal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
