Tuesday 21 May 2013, 12.00PM to 7.00pm

Feminist object(ive)s: Writing Art Histories will explore the aims, challenges and complications of writing art histories from a feminist standpoint, considering feminist methodologies, encounters with feminist art and culture, working with women artists as well as more broadly politically engaged art practices.

Five 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)
  • 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.
