We are pleased to announce the Sixth Feminist Art History Conference will be hosted at American University, in Washington, D.C., September 28-30, 2018.
This 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.
Papers may address such topics as: artists, movements, and works of art and architecture; cultural institutions and critical discourses; practices of collecting, patronage, and display; the gendering of objects, spaces, and media; the reception of images; and issues of power, agency, gender, and sexuality within visual cultures. Submissions on under-represented art-historical fields, national traditions, and issues of race and ethnicity are encouraged.
We welcome submissions from established and emerging scholars of art history, as well as advanced graduate students.
To be considered for participation, please provide a single document in Microsoft Word. It should consist of a one-page, single-spaced proposal of unpublished work up to 500 words for a 20-minute presentation, followed by a curriculum vitae of no more than two pages.
Please name the document “[last name]-proposal” and submit with the subject line “[last name]-proposal” to firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission deadline is December 1, 2017, and invitations to participate will be sent by February 1, 2018.
