The Philosophy and Art History Research Seminar meets weekly in term on Thursday afternoons to discuss a paper by a visiting philosopher, art historian, or a member of our academic staff.

This week's speaker is University of Plymouth art historian Professor Gemma Blackshaw.

Gemma specialises in Austrian art from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with a particular focus on that produced in Vienna around 1900. Other research interests include the intersection of modernism with medicine, modern portraiture and historiography. In this week's seminar, Gemma will discuss Egon Schiele’s clinical modernism.

The seminar will be followed by informal drinks at Top Bar and a meal.
