Feminism and Contemporary Art

One-week intensive Summer School at Middlesex University (6-12 July 2016) on research in feminism and contemporary art (fine art)

It is for anyone considering post-graduate study in feminist art history or about feminist art practices. I thought you would like to know about it as you may have students who would be interested in this form of study in July 2016.
If you know of any graduates, writers, curators or artists who may be interested in joining this course who are considering postgraduate study, please forward this to them or circulate this email in any networks or email lists.

This course will discuss how feminist theory has developed in relation to contemporary art practices in recent decades. The emphasis will be on trans-national and trans-generational discourses in feminist theory in relation to concepts of a ‘global contemporary’, like my journal n.paradoxa. The course will look back at developments in art during the last 50 years and look forward to new models of research in the field. The aim is for those attending, through discussion, to develop a plan for future work or a proposal for a PhD or MA research project.
