MATTHEW RAMPLEY

Is Chair of Art History at the Department of History of Art, University of Birmingham. His main interests are art criticism and the historiography of art, with a particular emphasis on Austrian, German and Central European intellectual traditions since the mid-nineteenth century. His current research is focused on heritage and visual culture in Austria-Hungary from the mid-nineteenth century to its demise in 1918. He is  particularly interested in the role of museums, galleries, monument protection offices, art academies and universities in shaping and communicating ideas of national artistic heritage. He is currently completing a book on the rise of art history as a discipline in Vienna at the end of the nineteenth century (the so-called ‘Vienna School of Art History’), examining the links between research into art and wider political debates over the social and cultural identity of Austria-Hungary. Rampley is associate editor of the Journal of Art Historiography.
