University of York, 21st May 2013, 12.00 – 7.00pm
This event, hosted by the Centre for Modern Studies at the University of York, will explore the aims, challenges and complications of writing art histories from a feminist standpoint, considering feminist methodologies, encounters with feminist art and culture, and working with women artists, as well as more broadly politically engaged art practices. Six scholars will reflect on their experiences of engaging with and constructing feminist art histories, before a roundtable involving all participants at the end of the afternoon. Confirmed speakers: Henrietta Stanford (Courtauld Institute of Art), Hilary Robinson (Middlesex University), James Boaden (York), Sylvie Simonds (McGill), Catherine Grant (Goldsmiths), Harriet Riches (Kingston).
In order to provide a series of jumping-off points for group discussion, participants are invited to provide a slide with an image or object relating to their own work. Location: The Tree House, Berrick Saul Building. Admission: Please contact Amy (email@example.com) for further details and to register.
