Research and learning at Goldsmiths is interdisciplinary: we work across departments and subject areas to collaborate together in new fields. This cross-disciplinary, collaborative way of working is at the heart of much of the research interests our academics specialise in and the degrees we teach.

Curating & the Arts

Goldsmiths is known for its work in contemporary arts practice. But is also the base for significant work in art theory, the history of art, analysis of visual culture, art and politics, curating, the computational arts, and the arts and learning.



Goldsmiths houses one of the largest groups of academics working within the digital division in the UK, across the arts, the humanities, the social sciences as well as in social and creative technologies.
