Visitor Homepage

Welcome to the Japan Art History Forum Website. In addition to the general information on this visitors side of our site, the much more extensive secure, password-protected, member section of this website contains a wealth of information of particular interest to professionals and students in our fields. Sections include information about individual members, bibliographies, course syllabi, practical professional advice, travel tips, photo acquisition sources, online reference material (including digital image databases and online exhibitions), archives of topical discussions from our email list, an organizational history where we post our annual activities, and official documents pertaining to our group.



Members of the Japanese Art History Forum would like to express our condolences to everyone affected by earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan on March 11th, 2011. The death toll and devastation have already been staggering, and members will do whatever we can to assist in the aftermath.

All of the major humanitarian organizations, including the Red Cross, have set up relief funds to offer immediate assistance to victims of the disasters, and JAHF members are encouraged to give generously to the charity of your choice.

JAHF also encourages members to make a contribution via a disaster relief fund set up by the Japan Society New York. The Japan Society have been consulting with and carefully screening potential partners for the relief effort by mobilizing their extensive network of NGO/NPO partners in Japan. 100% of the tax-deductible contributions will go to organization(s) that directly help victims recover from the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunamis.
