Modern and Contemporary

There is a very active community of researchers at The Courtauld who specialise in art from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Undergraduates and MAs are encouraged to join current (and often former) PhDs at the regular meetings of the Modern and Contemporary Research Seminars, which attract distinguished scholars in London and beyond. Public lectures with acclaimed visiting speakers are regularly organised, and the Courtauld organises and hosts colloquia and large-scale conferences in connection with events such as exhibitions.

MA students write their dissertations either on material arising directly from their course or, with their supervisor’s approval, on any other viable topic. The best dissertations achieve publishable standard in leading journals.

With the range of interests and expertise of the staff, and the availability of research resources in London, research students are encouraged to undertake pioneering work in a range of areas of art history. The large number of active research students in the modern and contemporary area creates a supportive and stimulating environment.
