Alumni Publish Book on Socially Engaged Art History

HAA graduate alumni Cindy Persinger (PhD 07) and Azar Rejaie (PhD 06) published their co-edited volume Socially Engaged Art History and Beyond: Alternative Approaches to the Theory and Practice of Art History (Palgrave 2021). This is the first book-length study to focus on growing and significant trends in socially engaged art history. It presents various arguments for the social, pedagogical, and scholarly benefits of alternative, community-engaged, public-facing, applied, and socially engaged art history. The international line up of contributors includes academics, museum and gallery curators as well as arts workers. Read more on Palgrave.
