Archive Materials: Feminism, Performance and Art History in the UK

Writing Feminist Art Histories

We are very pleased to announce a one day research symposium at the University of St Andrews on 7 October 2015. Archive Materials will adopt an expanded notion of the archive as a starting point to address the long history of feminist art and art history production in the UK. Building on the rich array of recent scholarship focussing on feminist art of the 1970s and 1980s, our discussion will look back to include significant eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth century precedents. Confirmed speakers include: Prof Hilary Robinson, Freya Gowrley, and Rachel Rose Smith, with more to be announced very soon.

Further information, including booking details: Archive Materials Announcement.

This event was kindly supported by the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art, and has been organised by Catherine Spencer (St Andrews) and Victoria Horne (Edinburgh).
