The series provides a forum for the study of British art and visual culture in the global context from 1700 to the present day.
The main focus of the series is threefold: the transport, location, and reception of British art across the world; the British reception and exhibition of art from around the globe; and transnational and cosmopolitan art containing significant British components.
The series seeks to problematize, historicize, and specify the idea of “British” art across the period, as it intersects with local, regional, international and global issues, communities, materials, and environments.
Specializing in studies of British art within comparative and interdisciplinary frameworks, the series includes monographs and thematic studies, and single authored works and edited volumes of essays.
The series publishes research which deals with fine art objects and the broader visual and material cultural environment of Britain and its historical territories, as well as with the global diaspora of British artists, genres, artefacts, materials and styles, and the contribution to British art of other global diasporas.
Proposals are welcomed which deal with aspects of art and design history and visual culture, from the perspective of the colonizing, decolonizing and post-colonial world, global history, and the circum-Atlantic.
