Welcome to the University of California, Riverside Art History Graduated Student Association (AHGSA) conference website. Since 2012, the conference has been held each spring at the Barbara and Art Culver Center of the Arts in Downtown Riverside. It is student-run, free, open to the public, and supported by the Department of the History of Art at UCR. 

The conference presents original research from graduate students across the disciplines that deals with visual and material culture, in conjunction with a keynote address from a practicing academic. A cornerstone event of our community, the goal is to generate dialogue on compelling topics related to the creation, mobilization, theorization and historicization of the arts, broadly defined. 

We invite you to browse this site for more information on the 2021 conference—(Art)iculations of Proximity and Mobility—as well as past conferences. ***Please note that due to covid-19, this year’s conference will be held online.
