Call for Papers and Digital Projects

Extended Deadline: October 1, 2023


Rutgers Art Review, a double-blind peer-reviewed journal of graduate research in art history, invites all current graduate students, as well as professionals who have completed their graduate degrees within the past year, to submit papers for its 41st edition.

Papers may address all topics, geographies, and historical periods within the history of art and architecture, visual and material culture, art theory and criticism, archaeology, cultural heritage and preservation, digital and public humanities, museum studies, film, and photography. We are particularly interested in publishing research focused on underrepresented geographies and communities, utilizing interdisciplinary approaches, and submissions from disciplines beyond art history that center visual materials.

We also welcome authors to submit papers that comment on the state of the field, are historiographical in nature, or projects that incorporate digital humanities resources and approaches. Digital humanities-focused papers should address important art historical questions with the help of digital tools. Of particular interest are digital projects that employ computational methods, mapping, networking, and/or 3D modeling to analyze and interpret art historical or archaeological materials.

To be considered for publication, submissions must present original contributions to existing scholarship and conform to our submission guidelines. We encourage authors to ask a faculty member to review their paper before submission. Additionally, RAR offers some publication assistance to accepted authors toward the cost of image rights.

In the body of the e-mail, please make sure to include: 

  • Your full name 
  • Preferred pronouns, if desired 
  • Institutional affiliation, degree, program, and year of study 
  • An e-mail address that will be viable for at least 2 years

Please submit all required materials in a single PDF file by October 1, 2023 to:
