THE FEMINIST ART HISTORY CONFERENCE #6 (November 2015) AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY IS
Members of the organizing committee for the FAHC at American University are
very sad to announce that we will not be able to hold the conference this year
(fall 2015). The suspension is due to a "perfect storm" of circumstances that
includes fewer faculty to participate in organizing the sessions; the retirement
last spring of the staff member who previously organized all the logistical
details; the financial costs; and the overall burden of programming and running
a three-day conference, no matter how wonderful for all involved. If you were preparing a proposal, we hope you will be able to submit your work elsewhere! We deeply regret
having to make this decision.
Feminist Art History Conference
The Feminist Art History Conference, sponsored by the Art History Program of American University, offers participants a space in which to engage with the expanding legacy of Norma Broude and Mary D. Garrard, two pioneering feminist art historians and professors emerita of art history at AU. Last year's conference included seventy-two presentations in nineteen sessions. The conference has a global focus that spans a broad range of topics and time periods; together the presentations illustrate the diverse ways in which feminist research and interpretation continue to inform art historical analysis and scholarship.
