The new art history
The new art history : a critical introduction
London ; New York : Routledge, 2001, 1 vol. (XVIII-302 p.).
The new art history provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental changes which have occured in both the institutions and practice of art history over the last thirty years. Jonathan Harris examines and accounts for the new approaches to the study of art which have been grouped loosely under the term «the new art history». He distinguishes between these and earlier forms of «radical» or «critical» analysis, explores the influence of other disciplines and traditions on art history, and relates art historical ideas and values to social change.
Structured around an examination of key texts by major contemporary critics, including Timothy Clark, Griselda Pollock, Fred Orton, Albert Boime, Alan Wallach and Laura Mulvey, each chapter discusses a key moment in the discipline of art history, tracing the development and interaction of marxist, feminist and psychoanalytic critical theories.
Jonathan Harris is senior lecturer in the School od Architecture at Liverpool University. He is the author of Federal art and national culture (1995), co-author of Modernism in dispute : art since the forties (1993), and co-editor of Art in modern culture (1992)
