News Issue No. 16 Autumn 2003
Immediations, the Courtauld Institutes new annual research journal, will be launched in Spring 2004. Immediations will publish original, high-quality research produced by students whilst studying at the Institute. The contents of the journal will include research from across the spectrum of art history, from antiquity to the present. By employing approaches as diverse as historiography and aesthetics, politically informed analysis and contemporary theoretical debate, the common denominator of Immediations will be its commitment to thorough academic inquiry, inspired by the unique resource facilities at the Institute. Being mainly student run, the journal provides an exceptional opportunity for the development of key professional skills.
