The Department of Art History is part of the African American Public Humanities Initiative (AAPHI) at the University of Delaware.
AAPHI is an interdisciplinary initiative that provides financial support and
scholarly collaboration for African American/Africana studies with an emphasis on public scholarship, community
outreach, collections-based research, and digital humanities. Benefits of the
AAPHI include fully-funded 5-year tuition and stipend and additional funding
for summer research/internships and professional development. After you have
applied to the Ph.D. program in Art History you can be considered for AAPHI.
The Ph.D. in Art History at the University of
Delaware provides study in the history of art from ancient to modern times,
with special concentrations in Western European and American art. Special Collections
and Museums, which includes the Paul R. Jones Collection in African
American art, enables students to study original works of art and organize
special exhibitions. Students also have access to a robust network of internships
in institutions beyond the University of Delaware. Graduate students in the
department organize an annual lecture series and have an opportunity to present
their research in the department's annual graduate symposium, as well as at
graduate symposia at the National Gallery of Art and the Barnes Foundation.
Art History faculty with expertise in African American
art, art of the African diasporas, and the history of slavery teach graduate
courses on the material culture of slavery, race in museums, and modern and contemporary
African and African American art. For a
complete list of current courses please visit our Graduate Courses page, and meet our faculty here.
