Art History: Contemporary Perspectives on Method examines some of the most significant approaches to the discipline of art history which have appeared in the scholarship of all periods over the last 30 years. The fascinating result is a cross section of art history in all its complexity, as well as a timely survey of its historiography.

The newly commissioned chapters, all by leading international scholars, examine discrete methods of writing about art history, ranging from the work of individual theorists and specific schools of thought to the broader problematics of historical interpretation and interdisciplinarity. Each chapter considers the impact and influence of these approaches on the formulation of histories of art, placing the discussions alongside the intellectual consequences. Of particular interest in this examination is what is lost or left out through these methods of historical enquiry, and where the points of contact and convergence with other methodologies lie.
