Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers for Visualising and Materialising Colonial Spaces: Female Responses to Empire, a one-day conference which will be held at the University of Warwick on 11 January 2014 and funded by The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. Confirmed keynote speakers include David Arnold, Emeritus Professor, Department of History, University of Warwick and Caroline Jordan, Honorary Associate in the Humanities and Social Sciences, La Trobe University Melbourne.
Visualising and Materialising Colonial Spaces: Female Responses to Empire demonstrates the significance of women’s cultural productions upon ideas of empire at home and abroad by examining the rich visual and archival sources created by British women in imperial spaces. It examines the paintings, sketches, writings, collections, and objects that women created to capture and record their experiences of empire. In doing so it questions the role women played in constructing particular understandings of and narratives about imperial experiences in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
