Art History isn’t all Da Vinci, Turner and Picasso! The Association of Art Historians is proud to present ‘Art History in the Pub’, a lecture series that’s been running in Camden throughout 2011. They aim to bring you cutting edge talks on surprising, fascinating, extraordinary visual culture topics in a relaxed and informal setting. Recent talks have dealt with topics including murder and 18th century sword-making; tattooing; taxidermy; and the graphic design of 1950s housing estate signs. Their slot at the Camden Crawl will include a lecture on representations of meat in art, as well as several other topics from the fringes of their discipline. Line Up & Running Order:
2:30pm – 3:30pm – Juliette Kristensen (Kingston University) – ‘Typewriters: Mechanised Writing in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries’
3:45pm – 4:15pm – Gemma Angel (UCL) – ‘Preserved Tattoo Specimens’
4:30pm – 5:00pm – Paul Davies (University of Reading) – ‘Buildings Made of Bones’
5:15pm – 5:45pm – Sabine Wieber (University of Glasgow) – ‘ Meat: The Representation of Slaughter in late nineteenth-century Europe’
DJ Ewen Frater (Orgone Accumulators; State Icons) playing appropriate and suitably strange music before, after and between talks.
Art History In The Pub will be appearing at Enterprise on Sunday
