History of Art at the University of Oxford draws on a long and deep tradition of teaching and studying the subject. The core academic staff of the History of Art Department work on subjects from medieval European architecture to modern Chinese art. Over fifty associated academic staff (e.g. in Anthropology, Classics, History, Oriental Studies, and the Ruskin School of Drawing) include teachers and researchers across the full global and historical range of art and visual culture. This offers students exciting possibilities to take courses and receive supervision on a very wide range of topics, and to develop their own interests in art history.

Eminent professors lecturing at a preeminent university - what a privilege to listen in! Right? Unfortunately, WRONG 😥! First, there are technical difficulties: without experienced sound engineers it’s difficult to get quality audio in a lecture hall. These podcast recordings, especially the early ones, are amateurish and not clear. Second, there is no engagement with the speaker. The best podcasts create a virtual emotional connection with the listener. These lectures leave us feeling like unwelcome guests. Third, some of the speakers just aren’t very good. Some because of poor voices, others are simply boring.
