Since 2011 the Department of History of Art at the University of Bristol has periodically published the best of the annual dissertations produced by our final-year undergraduates. We do so in recognition of the excellent research undertaken by our students, which is a cornerstone of our degree programme. As a department, we are committed to the advancement of art historical knowledge and to research of the highest order. Our undergraduates are part of that endeavour.
From the links below you can access a selection of our best undergraduate art history dissertations. Please note that these dissertations are published in the state they were submitted for examination. Thus the authors have not been able to correct errors and/or departures from departmental guidelines for the presentation of dissertations (for example, in the formatting of footnotes and bibliographies). In each case, copyright resides with the author and all rights are reserved.
