CFP: Feminist Approaches to Medieval Art

CFP: Feminist Approaches to Medieval Art: Islam, Byzantium, and the West
International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, Michigan
13-16 May 2010

Feminist scholarship has had relatively little impact on Byzantine art history, and has yet to become visible in work on medieval Islamic art or on cross-cultural encounters. This session seeks to expand feminist discourses on medieval visual culture by extending their geographic, religious, and cultural parameters. We welcome papers that investigate feminist approaches to art of the Byzantine or Islamic traditions, as well as investigations that engage with the cross-cultural exchanges evident in material from across the medieval world.

Sponsored by the Medieval Feminist Art History Project.

Submission Details: Please submit a one-page abstract (for a 20-minute presentation) and a Participant Information Form (link below) to Marian Bleeke at no later than September 15, 2009.
