About the Journal

TERMS: CIHA Journal of Art History publishes research that explores the art-historical terminology used by experts with different languages, cultures, and nationalities across the globe. One aim is to compare diverse uses of the terms reflected in different concepts and phenomena in art history as a whole. The other is to critically reinvestigate and reexamine these within the framework of globalization, highlighting the varying interpretations and ongoing debates among art historians who do not share a single politics, religion, culture, or language. With these two aims, TERMS seeks to explore the discrepancies, distortions, and programmatic potentials of various perspectives in art history, especially of marginal and dissident views.
