History of Art field trips!

Hi! I’m Alizée, I study Curating and Art History. I’m an international student, and despite having lived in York for a year before the start of my course, I wasn’t very familiar with much of the art that the city offers. Field trips have been a huge part of me falling in love with York and its surroundings and I’ve decided to document these lovely places, objects and favourite moments through a blog post. The outings around York and Leeds have been a real highlight of my modules and I think field trips offer so many opportunities to learn how to think critically about the art and architecture around us, and also to make friends. Through the visits, I realised you don’t need to go very far to find interesting objects and buildings hiding amazing stories, and that you can find many clues about what they mean or represent from observation.

What the History of Art Department has to offer!

Hi there! I’m Aneeska, a second year History of Art undergrad. I chose York because of the welcoming nature of the department on the open day. I have really enjoyed my time in York so far, and the support and great opportunities on offer from the department has really made my experience!
