Historians of British Art (HBA)
HBA was founded in Chicago in 1992. It is an affiliated society of the College Art Association (North America). The purpose of HBA is to foster communication and to promote the study and sharing of ideas among those engaged in any type of scholarship or other professional endeavor related to British art and architecture of every area and/or period. The membership of HBA is international in scope. It hosts sessions at the annual CAA conference, in addition to a separate business meeting and an off-site visit to a local collection of British art. Whenever possible, HBA also organizes private, expert-led visits for its members to exhibitions, auctions, and fairs involving British art around North America.
The HBA Newsletter is published biannually for members only. The members section of this website contains a directory of current members, calls for papers, previous HBA Newsletters, Art and Research Resources, and a listing of HBA's Board Members.
