The International Consortium on Art History

International Springtime Academies

The International Springtime Academies in the history of art constitute the central meeting of Consortium members and students. It is an annual meeting and brings together a limited number of selected participants -- masters, doctoral, and post-doctoral students -- within a rigorous context of research, exchange, and instruction. The Academy's location rotates to different cities each year.
The purpose of the Academies is not that of a conference but of training. It also reinforces links amongst professors, while fostering collaboration in the teaching, training, and advising of students; in some cases joint collaborations lead to cotutelles.
