Hispanic Research Journal

Visual Arts Issue


Jeffrey Schrader, University of Colorado Denver, USA

 Tom Nickson,  Courtauld Institute of Art, UK

A fifth issue of every year is now devoted to the visual arts, including painting, architecture, sculpture, film, photography, and exhibition and book reviews


The Visual Arts Issue is one of two special annual issues of the Hispanic Research Journal, the other being Screen Arts. As with all issues of Hispanic Research Journal, it promotes research into the cultures of the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America, from the Middle Ages to the present day, but with a special focus on the visual arts – defined in their broadest sense to include all material and visual culture. Film and photography are covered by the Screen Arts issue, however. The issue is international in scope, and represents an important forum for the very best scholars working on Hispanic and Lusophone visual culture, past and present. Articles can be in English, Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese.


Co-Editor Tom Nickson talks to us
about the visual arts issues


Since its first issue in 2007, the Visual Arts issue has had two special issues. The first (2010) is a collection of essays in honour of the distinguished scholar of Spanish art, Nigel Glendinning. The second, Picturing Kingship in Medieval Castile (2012), includes important essays by five scholars of medieval Spanish art, together with over fifty high-quality colour images – many of them reproducing important objects that have never before been published.

Instructions for Authors
This annual peer-reviewed publication is co-edited by Tom Nickson (Courtauld Institute of Art) and Jeff Schrader (University of Colorado, Denver), who work in close collaboration with the editor-in-chief of the Hispanic Research Journal. The editorial team actively solicits contributions from established figures in the field as well as from promising young scholars. The Visual Arts issue has slightly different style guides to the other issues of Hispanic Research Journal, so potential authors are advised to consult the guidelines here or consult the editors before submitting.
