Howells Utopia Cover



 “Visual Culture: Not Just Another Name for Art History”, book chapter forthcoming in A Companion to the Theories and Methods of Art History, edited by Geraldine A. Johnson (Oxford University), Hoboken, NJ: Wiley-Blackwell, forthcoming, 2023. I argue that Art History should be considered a branch of Visual Culture, and not vice versa.

Visual Culture, fourth, revised, and expanded edition, with Joaquim Negreiros, Henrik Linden, and Sara Linden, Cambridge, England and Malden, Massachusetts: Polity Press, forthcoming, 2026. This is the fourth edition of my college-level textbook, first published in 2003.
