If you happen to be in Wellington on April 7, do consider attending a public lecture on feminist oral history being presented by Lynn Abrams, one of the leading scholars in the field. Professor of Modern History at the University of Glasgow, Lynn has published widely on oral history, notably her important book, Oral history Theory. In her public lecture she will draw upon oral histories conducted with British women who came of age in the immediate post-war decades to explore the influence and meaning of feminism in life narratives. Click on ‘This isn’t very feminist at all…’ Talking about feminism with post-war British women for details.
If you missed last month’s Making Women Visible conference, or there were papers on the programme you wanted to see, but couldn’t, then you’re in luck! The Dowse in Lower Hutt is hosting a one-day symposium, Four Waves of Feminism, on 8 April that brings together presenters from the conference, and others, to discuss feminism in contemporary art, art history and curating. This is going to be a popular event, so make sure you register your interest in attending ASAP!
