MPhil is a standalone, one-year (full-time) research degree.  Students will undertake their own research project, concluding in the submission of a 25,000 word dissertation. Students may have the option to audit units from the taught Masters courses if they are relevant to their research. The Department of History of Art’s staff specialisms range from medieval altarpieces to Soviet public monuments, from pre-Renaissance sculpture to contemporary art of the diaspora. The Department is interested in thinking across historical periods and through a variety of critical approaches. Much research is carried out by individual scholars, with specific expertise in the following areas: British art and art criticism; Theories of modernism; Abstraction; Sculpture (esp. late medieval & Renaissance); 20th-century German art; 20th-century Russian and Soviet art; Representations of sport and the body; Medieval art, visual and material culture; Late medieval and Renaissance sculpture; 17th-century Italian art; Art and visual culture of the Black Atlantic; Medieval and modern art and music interrelationships (including sound and audio art, sound and architecture, visual music, iconography and synaesthesia).
