Using a History of Ideas Approach in an Arts Context

Professor Malcolm Quinn, Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon, UAL

This seminar will introduce research in the History of Ideas, an approach which emphasizes the historical context of the development of key ideas that have shaped modern thought.  Malcolm Quinn will discuss a recent publication in the journal History of European Ideas in order to elucidate the requirements and opportunities that are available for researchers working in this area, and explain the relevance of a history of ideas methodology to research in art design and communication.  

Before the session please read the following article, which can be found on the UAL access system: ‘Jeremy Bentham on Liberty of Taste’.
