Book cover: History and Art History: Looking Past Disciplines Edited by Mitchell Frank and Nicholas Chare

History and Art History: Looking Past Disciplines, a collection of essays edited by Carleton’s Mitchell Frank (Art History/ICSLAC) and Nicholas Chare (Université de Montreal) was just released by Routledge. Spanning a diverse range of time periods and places, the essays in the volume cumulatively showcase ways in which ongoing dialogue between history and art history raises important aesthetic, ethical and political questions for the disciplines. Other Carleton faculty members were involved in the project.  Birgit Hopfener (Art History/ICSLAC) contributed an essay, “Still Another, and Yet Another: Li Ran’s Re-writings of Art History – a Translational Historiographical Approach to Global Art History,” and Mark Salber Phillips (Professor Emeritus, History and ICSLAC) co-wrote with Mitchell Frank “Historical Distance and the Nineteenth-Century Revival of Fresco.”
