The Journal of Canadian Art History/Annales d'histoire de l'art canadien is the only peer-reviewed publication devoted entirely to the history and theory of the visual arts in Canada. Founded in 1974, JCAH/AHAC appears in print twice yearly. The mandate of JCAH/AHAC is to encourage research and disseminate knowledge of all aspects of the history of Canadian art, architecture, and the decorative arts. Contributions in the form of articles, essays, and reviews are welcomed from Canadian and non-Canadian specialists in art history, cultural theory, and cognate disciplines. Past issues include: examinations of works by significant artists, architects, designers, and craftspersons; close readings of particular art objects, buildings, and other forms of material culture; historical and theoretical investigations of media, movements, institutions, and education. Issues are either compendia of recent scholarship or edited thematic collections. A review section is included in most issues. The material is published in English or French; articles and essays are accompanied by translated summaries.
Back issues of JCAH/AHAC can be ordered from the editorial offices and will be made available online, with three years (six issues) held back.
