The Department of Art History at Stony Brook University offers a dynamic and interdisciplinary program of art history, criticism and theory at M.A. and Ph.D. levels. Ideally located halfway between the art centers of New York City and the Hamptons, Stony Brook offers a unique opportunity to study in a quiet and spacious setting while maintaining close contact with the pulse of the art world. The goals of the program include the development of the critic-historian, who can combine the various fields of traditional art historical study with a critical consciousness and awareness of broad intellectual issues involved in such study; the development of alternative perspectives on art, popular culture and visual culture; the development of practicing art critics; the interdisciplinary study of 19th- and 20th-century art; and the study of the history of art criticism.

The 2013 Art History and Criticism Lecture Series is generously supported by the Stony Brook Graduate Students Organization, the Building Graduate Communities Initiative of the Graduate School, and the Department of Art History at Stony Brook University.
