About the Journal

Panorama is a peer-reviewed, open-access, online publication dedicated to American art and visual culture (broadly defined) from the colonial period to the present day. The journal is intended to provide a high-caliber international forum for disseminating original research and scholarship and for sustaining a lively engagement with intellectual developments and methodological debates in art history, visual and material cultural studies, and curatorial work. It encourages a broad range of perspectives and approaches within an interdisciplinary framework encompassing both local and global contexts. Panorama welcomes submissions that utilize the insights of both traditional and new historical and interpretive approaches to American art.

Panorama is published twice a year, with past issues archived on the journal website. In addition to peer-reviewed feature articles, Panorama publishes the following editor-reviewed sections: In the Round, suites of scholarly articles on a common theme; Research Notes, shorter scholarly articles about research discoveries or developing projects; the Bully Pulpit, a section pairing short scholarly and polemical texts with responses from academics, curators, critics, and other interpreters of American art and visual culture; and Book and Exhibition Reviews. All content is available on our site immediately in full-text format for free without embargo. The University of Minnesota Libraries preserves the content of Panorama using standard methodologies and preservation technologies.

Panorama, the official journal of the Association of Historians of American Art, is supported in part by its membership. Major funding for Panorama is provided by the Henry Luce Foundation, with additional support from the Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
