Publication of the Universities Art Association.


RACAR is a general art history journal, published by the Universities Art Association of Canada. As the one general art history journal published in Canada, RACAR’s scope reflects the range and diversity of art history practices at the national and international levels. The articles in RACAR cover all countries and all periods as well as the history of design. RACAR reviews current books and exhibitions.

The journal also offers a space for artists to present, reflect upon, and discuss their work, as well as a forum for current concerns, debates, and polemics in art history. RACAR is published twice a year: a general issue in the spring and a guest-edited thematic issue in fall. RACAR is available electronically through JSTOR and Érudit, and in hard copy by subscription.

Advertising  space is available in all of our RACAR issues.  For information on rates and space availability, please contact Lisa Kehler at or at (204)510-0088.
