The Centre grows out of several major projects, as a natural continuation of the questions raised by their research.

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800) is one of its academic parents.

The Centre also develops the work of the Harvard University run seminar ‘Art on the Move: From Riverbed to Seashore’ (2014-2015), generously funded by the Getty Foundation, reuniting some of its participants.

Croatian partners include the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (HAZU) and Institute for Art History (IPU).

The Centre also collaborates with the UWA Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS), and Barque Stefano Yinikurtira Foundation based in Perth, Australia.
