Athenaeum Review

A journal of essays, reviews, and interviews by leading scholars in the arts and humanities.

The Athenaeum Review is a journal published twice a year by the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History and the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas.

The mission of Athenaeum Review is to make interesting and important ideas in the humanities freely available to the general educated public and to promote thoughtful, in-depth criticism of the arts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Issues include essays by top scholars, book and exhibition reviews, interviews with scholars and artists, and folios of artwork that together cover a wide range of topics in the humanities.

The Athenaeum Review website features additional content, such as a series of extended illustrated interviews with artists including Lorraine Tady, Angela Kallus, Bryan Florentin, Liz Trosper, and Luke Harnden, all of whose work is published in the first print issue.

The Athenaeum Review podcast features conversations with scholars and artists including recent O’Donnell Institute fellows and guests Abigail Solomon-Godeau, Yve-Alain Bois, Suzanne Preston Blier, Michael Lobel, and Annabel Daou.

The Athenaeum Review is available by subscription or by order of a single issue.
