Harnessing the innovative potential of digital technologies, Panorama offers open access to groundbreaking scholarship on visual and material culture. We embrace the study of the diverse artistic production that circulates within and beyond the constructed geographies of what is now the United States.
We value and model collaboration, inclusivity, and dialogue in our content, presentation formats, and contributors. Our publication—which offers texts of varying lengths authored by leading and emerging thinkers—serves specialists, students at various levels, and lifelong learners.
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; Colloquium, a section pairing short scholarly and polemical texts with responses from academics, curators, critics, and other interpreters of American art and visual culture; Digital Dialogues, reviews and reflections on the digital work that is impacting American art history; 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 Terra Foundation for American Art and the Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
