Durham University’s strategic commitment to visual culture was cemented in 2013 by the creation of the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture (CVAC).

Durham University has exceptional research strengths in Spanish and Latin American visual arts and cultures. Twenty researchers from a number of different departments, including Anthropology, Geography, History, Modern Languages and Cultures, Music, Theology and Religion, are currently exploring topics from the Middle Ages to modernity and post-modernity, and a range of different visual and performative forms, from the fine arts through to theatre, cinema, music and photography.
