Lesbian Lives Conference 2013
15th Feb 2013 – 16th Feb 2013
Sallis Benney Theatre, Brighton, UK
20th Annual Lesbian Lives Conference, ‘The Modern Lesbian’ Held on 15-16 February 2013 and hosted by University of Brighton LGBT and Queer Life Research Hub in conjunction with Women’s Studies Centre, University College Dublin.
The Lesbian Lives Conference is the world’s only annual academic conference in Lesbian Studies – it is a large international event that draws speakers and participants from all continents and hosts the best-known as well as emerging scholars in the field. The theme for the 20th Annual Lesbian Lives Conference is The Modern Lesbian. The registration is open now.
This conference has a very rich programme of women presenting their research. I have had a look at the programme to see if there are any presentations of arts related research.
Friday 15 February 2013 there is one session. The programme reads:
“Art is Long, Life is Short: Modern women artists, collaboration and legacy at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
1. Zoe Clayton (V&A), The Boston Marriage of Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards – watercolourists and diorama makers (1919-1971)
2. Dawn Hoskin (V&A), The Suffrage Atelier: Working Together & Contesting ‘Womanliness’
3. Mara Gold (V&A), Collaborative ‘Arrangements’: the work of Frances Hodgkins and Dorothy Richmond.”
And in the programme Saturday 16 February 2013 I have spotted an artist presentation by Deborah Wheeler, USA.
This year the organizers are not offering the home stay option for accommodation, but invite you to join their facebook page titled Lesbian Lives Conference UDC.
