Seminar Description

This project is a research seminar that brings early career scholars from Eastern Europe and Latin America to work together on the subject of the intersection between art and feminism. Researchers from both regions face the hegemony of Western art historical discourse, but they mostly undertake attempts to undermine it separately. The seminar provides a platform for the exchange of interregional and trans-regional perspectives on how to undermine the dominant narrative regarding art and feminism and how to envision the construction of an alternative global discourse. It is expected that the seminar will give a new impetus to studies of art and feminism by introducing a perspective that distances itself from the established conceptual framework.

The seminar will be co-led by Agata Jakubowska (Warsaw University, project director) and Andrea Giunta (University of Buenos Aires).
