Feminist Art History Conference to Resume in Fall of 2018


(Marie Denise Villers, Marie Joséphine Charlotte du Val d’Ognes, 1801)

Thanks to a generous endowment, the Feminist Art History Conference at American University will resume on a biennial basis starting in the fall of 2018. 

The 2018 conference will take place September 28-30, with a keynote address delivered by Amelia Jones, Robert A. Day Professor in Art and Design and Vice-Dean of Critical Studies at the Roski School of Art and Design, University of Southern California.

The conference builds on the legacy of feminist art-historical scholarship and pedagogy initiated by Norma Broude and Mary D. Garrard at American University.  With the goal of fostering a broad dialogue on feminist art-historical practice, the event will feature papers spanning a range of chronological, geographic, and intersectional topics.  A call for proposals will appear this fall.
