Victoria Scott

Victoria H.F. Scott will deliver the keynote address for "Discipline and Doctrine," an inter-disciplinary graduate student symposium hosted by the Art History Graduate Student Association and the Digital Humanities Working Group at the University of Illinois at Chicago. 

Victoria H.F. Scott specializes in American and European art after 1945, but she has broad interests and always has several projects ongoing. She is the founder of The Art History Guild, and co-founder of the European Postwar and Contemporary Art Forum (EPCAF), and is on the board of nonsite.org. Her book 1968 and the Betrayal of Art: Cultural Revolution, Television, Posters, and the Avant-Garde is scheduled to be published by AC Press later this year, and she is also editing an anthology with Noemi de Haro García and Jacopo Galimberti titled Maoism, Art, and the New Chinese World Order. Her most important current project is: “Make Art History Count! An Interactive Platform for Discipline-based Statistical Analysis.”
