Natasha O’Hear receives ACE award

ITIA is pleased to congratulate our own Natasha O’Hear and her co-author Anthony O’Hear on the recognition of their book Picturing the Apocalypse (Oxford University Press).

Picturing the Apocalypse was awarded a prize by Art and Christianity Enquiry, who promote excellence in educational projects and academic research in the field of visual art and religion.

The ACE/Mercers’ Book Award is the only literary prize worldwide for a publication that notably advances a public understanding of the relationship between the visual arts and religious experience, beliefs and practice.

Dr Natasha O’Hear is part-time Lecturer in Theology & Visual Art at ITIA. The prize of £3,000 was presented in October.
