Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History: The New Edition

The Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History is rethought with a new navigation and interface, updated images, and restructured editorial content. Still relational in nature, it allows a reader to find exactly what he or she needs while also encouraging total immersion through a seamless browsing experience. The new Timeline is fully optimized to be responsive on desktop and mobile devices, enabling easy access anywhere.

The Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History presents a chronological, geographical, and thematic exploration of global art history through The Met collection. It is a reference, research, and teaching tool conceived for students and scholars of art history. Authored by The Met’s experts, the Timeline comprises 300 chronologies, close to 1000 essays, and over 7000 works of art. It is regularly updated and enriched to provide new scholarship and insights on the collection, and draws 1 to 1.5 million visits per month during the academic year. The Met’s Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History is funded by the Heilbrunn Foundation, New Tamarind Foundation, and Zodiac Fund.

We would love to know what you think of the new site. For all questions and comments, please contact timeline@metmuseum.org.

Call for Essays | Interiority and the Interior

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on June 14, 2016

From H-ArtHist:

Interiorities: Artistic, Conceptual, and Historical Reassessments of the Interior
Palgrave Communications

Guest Editor: Vlad Ionescu (Faculty of Architecture and Art, Hasselt University, Belgium)

Article proposals due by 31 October 2016; full submissions due by February 2017

Palgrave Communications is inviting article proposals for a collection dedicated to the theme of ‘Interiority and the Interior’. The collection addresses interiority as a concept debated by artists and philosophers, historians and sociologists alike. The goal of this interdisciplinary collection is to approach interiority and the interior as relational entities that interact with architectural spaces, visual arts and music, social and political ideologies, geographical and historical structures. We welcome contributions that address the interior as an opportunity to research the status of the subjectivity in modernity and beyond. Article proposals and enquires should be sent to the Managing Editor at palcomms@palgrave.com.
