Professor of Art History at the University of California, Los Angeles, Donald Preziosi has written many notable books concerning intellectual history, critical theory, and museology. In August 2007 he became the MacGeorge Fellow at the University of Melbourne. He is a past president of the Semiotic Society of America (1985). His 1998 book The Art of Art History: A Critical Anthology is considered ‘the most widely used English-language introduction to art history’. At UCLA, Professor Preziosi developed the art history critical theory program and the UCLA museum studies program. At Oxford, he held the Slade Professorship of Fine Arts in 2001, where he delivered a series of lectures entitled Seeing Through Art History. His talk will deal with issues being discussed in his forthcoming book on art and religion.
