Previous issues of sequitur can be found here.

Founded in 2014, SEQUITUR is an online biannual scholarly journal dedicated to addressing events, issues, and personalities in art and architectural history. SEQUITUR engages with and expands current conversations in the field by promoting the perspectives of graduate students from around the world. It seeks to contribute to existing scholarship by focusing on valuable but oft-overlooked parts of art and architectural history.
