The University of Edinburgh is hosting a one-day research workshop for scholars and students working on the history of women’s art and feminist historiography. Researchers from other areas of women’s cultural histories and gendered historiographies are welcome. The event will be based around four presentations from established scholars in the field – Jill Burke, Lara Perry, Jo Applin and Alexandra Kokoli – however, the emphasis will be on the exchange of ideas and group discussion. The sessions will be chaired by Vicky Horne and Angela Dimitrakaki.
This is intended to be an informal research event and an opportunity to get together in order to debate the complex process of writing academic cultural history from a feminist perspective. Potential participants should send a short biography and note of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 31st August 2012. Suggested readings will be circulated nearer the event to ensure a productive discussion. Maximum attendance: 20 participants.
