Fifth Annual Feminist Art History Conference
American University, Washington, D.C., 31 October — 2 November 2014

The Fifth Annual 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. This year’s conference includes sixty-eight papers in seventeen sessions. The papers have a global focus that spans a broad range of topics and time periods; together they illustrate the diverse ways in which feminist research and interpretation continue to inform art historical analysis and scholarship.

All events this year will take place on the American University campus. Please see the 2014 program posted online. This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Lisa Gail Collins, is Professor of Art History at Vassar College. Her talk, titled “Here Lies Love: Feminism, Mourning, and a Quilt from Gee’s Bend,” is drawn from her current book project on history, memory, creativity, and community.

The eighteenth-century offerings are modest, but these two caught my attention. CH

• Heather Belnap Jensen, “Parures, Pashminas, and Portraiture, or, How the Bonaparte Women Fashioned the Napoleonic Empire”
• Anne Nellis Richter, “The Marchioness of Stafford and the Cleveland House Gallery, 1812”
