The journal aims to demonstrate the range and diversity of new and emerging graduate and postgraduate research undertaken in Ireland, by Irish scholars living abroad or on topics related to Irish visual and material culture. It is the only peer-reviewed journal in Ireland committed to publishing contemporary research in the areas of art history, design history, material culture and visual culture studies on Irish and internationally focused subjects.
