The Courtauld’s annual Modern and Contemporary Second Year PhD Colloquium showcases the breadth of research in the history of modern and contemporary art undertaken by the Courtauld’s second-year research students. This year, the colloquium will take the form of three dialogues, through which seven new papers will bring together a diverse group of research topics that span the length of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Tracing strands of convergence across distinct subjects and contexts – from the paintings of Edward Hopper to artists working in digital and internet formats – the colloquium brings together a cohort of researchers to reflect on the overriding thematic, historical, geographical and methodological preoccupations of their collective research. This year, questions of politics and place dominate the work of students in modern and contemporary, presenting an opportunity for meaningful dialogues surrounding the ongoing interaction of modern and contemporary art history with broader spheres of social, political and cultural experience. Exploring questions of gender, violence and nationalism in particular, these papers will collectively investigate the relation of local to global identities, and of the individual to the universal.
