Best undergraduate History of Art dissertations of 2013

Best undergraduate dissertations in History of Art, 2013

In June 2011 the Department of Historical Studies at the University of Bristol voted to begin to publish the best of the annual dissertations produced by the department’s final year History of Art undergraduates (deemed to be those receiving a mark of 75 or above). We did so in recognition of the excellent research work being undertaken by our students. As a department, we are committed to the advancement of historical knowledge and understanding, and to research of the highest order. We believe that our undergraduates are part of that endeavour.

Listed below are the the best of this year’s final year undergraduate dissertations, with links to the dissertations themselves where these are available. Please note, however, 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 (e.g. in the formatting of footnotes and bibliographies). In each case, copyright resides with the author and all rights are reserved.
