Anglo-Saxon metalworkers were like the Michelangelo of the 8th century!
Art history straddles the digital divide. Its pedagogical practices have been transformed by digital technology, but its scholarship remains wedded to the printed age. … Art history is invested in the monographic book as the prime vehicle for transmission of knowledge and academic advancement, and this bias is reinforced by tenure and promotion standards that privilege books over other types of publications.

There are only a couple open access, online art history journals, but they are limited in scope. ArtHistory.us aims to add to their numbers. Our field can move past print publication bias, and slowly but surely, it will.
Be a force of change by submitting an article to ArtHistory.us. Let’s create a new kind of journal for an emerging type of art history.
“Millions of men have lived to fight, build palaces and boundaries, shape destinies and societies; but the compelling force of all times has been the force of originality and creation profoundly affecting the roots of human spirit.” ~Ansel Adams

First off, if you are asking a question, use the ask a question box, not the submission box.
Secondly, you don’t seem to understand the concept of the quote my professor made as a basis for most of art history as an overall concept. As an artist, and an art historian, I have also looked at, drawn, painted, studied, and sculpted a grand variety of genitals.
What you don’t seem to comprehend is that "If you can’t handle genitals, you can’t handle art history" is in reference to being able to mentally handle the CONCEPT of looking at genitals as imagery whether in the 2D or 3D sense in historical context due to the current social stigma and taboo that has developed now a days in american society against genitals.
You were just too literal in your reading of the phrase which is where some people misunderstand the concept. I am sorry your thought process led you to think that way. Art history 50% of the time is literal interpretation, and the other 50% requires further deeper internal analysis rather than face value.
I apologize if I seem rude, but the phrase was not meant to be a literal interpretation of word arrangement. Apparently in this case, you cant handle the concept of genitals in a physical sense even if you physically handle them in an artistic sense.
Hello everyone! I am the other half of the art history sisters and I would like every one to know that our main blogger (the art history major) is currently studying in Greece for three weeks and will not be able to answer questions.
I will be sure to post when she is back and I’m sure she will post about her trip here with pictures and facts she learned on the trip.
Thank you all!
Know your place!
