Project Details


The research program Historical Studies of Arts and Culture (HISTAC) explores the historical aspects of aesthetical and historical practices such as art, literature, theatre, music, museology, cultural heritage and more. The aim of the program is to investigate, develop and make visible historical and historiographical research with special attention to the interdisciplinary, inter-aesthetical and comparative perspectives. With the historical focus we wish to create academic synergy between different studies of the arts and of culture, of historiographical questions, and the material- and intellectual history, the history of art institutions, political history etc. The program is open to all researchers and projects related to the historical studies of arts and culture from antiquity till today. The program is especially interested in consolidating and developing outreach in relation to historical studies.
