Opportunity: Third Annual Feminist Art History Conference, American University

Third Annual Feminist Art History Conference, American University

Sessions and keynote will be held on AU’s campus in Washington, D.C., with additional events at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in conjunction with its 25th Anniversary celebration.


Please submit via e-mail a one-page, single-spaced proposal and two-page curriculum vita by May 15, 2012
Notification of acceptance by July 1, 2012.

This conference builds on the legacy of feminist art-historical scholarship and pedagogy initiated by Norma Broude and Mary D. Garrard at American University. To further the inclusive spirit of their groundbreaking anthologies, we invite papers on subjects spanning the chronological and geographic spectrum to foster a broad dialogue on feminist art-historical practice. Speakers 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.
