A STRANGE PLACE STILL? RELIGION IN CONTEMPORARY ART
A Symposium of the Association of Scholars of Christianity in the History of Art (ASCHA)
Founded in 2010, The Association of Scholars of Christianity in the History of Art (ASCHA, pronounced "ash-uh") is dedicated to the facilitation and promotion of scholarship which examines the historical and contemporary relationship between Christianity and the visual arts.
ASCHA is international, non-partisan, and ecumenical; we invite the participation of scholars of all and no personal faith persuasions. ASCHA encourages the critical study of Christianity and the visual arts as that relationship is diversely manifested in all historical periods and world cultures.
ASCHA is dedicated to the establishment and upholding of professional standards of scholarship and education through the development and practice of rigorous scholarly methodologies. ASCHA seeks to create a generous and hospitable space for scholars that is known for expertise without arrogance. ASCHA is dedicated to examining problems that confront the field by identifying scholarly needs and fostering opportunities for the presentation and publication of new scholarship. ASCHA is a forum for the advancement of research, dialog, collaboration, and publication in the area of Christianity and the visual arts through the open and respectful exchange of knowledge and ideas among scholars.
