About the Journal

Focus and Scope

ARTiculate is a peer-reviewed, art historical journal that showcases the work of students currently pursuing a Graduate Degree in Art History and Visual Studies. ARTiculate issues include research articles as well as exhibition and book reviews, or other creative works.

The publication is reflective of the University of Victoria's Department of Art History and Visual Culture's  dedication to a global art history. The wide array of cultures and mediums covered exemplifies the development of a forum for graduate art historical scholarship that remains committed to this inclusive approach. Given the intent to produce a publication attentive to the diversity implicated in contemporary definitions for artistic production, no preference is given to submissions pertaining to a particular temporal or cultural context. Consequently, prospective applicants are encouraged to utilize any number of theoretical approaches to develop their analyses.

Selection of submitted material will be based on originality, quality of research, effective methodology, and overall contribution to the field of art history.

Peer Review Process

Peer review is an essential component in the selection process. All accepted submissions will be reviewed by two scholars in the specific area addressed by the paper in a double-blind process.

Publication Frequency

The inaugural issue of ARTiculate was published in February 2012. Thereafter, publication is anticipated approximately every two years. Volume 4 is scheduled to appear in the spring of 2022.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
