In Depth:Feminism and History Conference and Update

The Artists page has been updated , with some more names and a few resources. This week I am looking at

intersections of feminism and technoscience and also searching for artists using computer media that focus

on gender/body/identity.

On Saturday Bishopsgate Institute is holding a one-day-conference in Feminism and History (organised by the History of Feminism Network in partnership with the Raphael Samuel History Centre, Goldsmiths, University of London-History and Politics Departments and the Graduate School), which I will be attending.

From the site:

“This one-day conference will explore the relationship between feminism and the making and writing of history. Postgraduates and early career scholars will present papers on many different aspects of the history of women’s movements since 1800, including ‘women of letters’, feminism and religion and re-thinking the first and second waves of feminism. The day will also discuss the rise of feminist history in the context of the women’s liberation movement and ask whether there is still a future for feminist history.

Speakers include Professor Barbara Taylor (University of East London), Dr Lucy Bland (London Metropolitan University), Dr Kathryn Gleadle (University of Oxford), Dr Lucy Delap (University of Cambridge) and Dr Margaretta Jolly (University of Sussex)”.

The Feminist Acivist Forum will also have a presence there, presenting their work on ‘Outwrite’ newspaper.
