Wednesday 14 April 2021, 17.30 - 18.15
Please join the book editors and chapter authors to celebrate the publication of Under the Skin: Feminist Art and Art Histories from the Middle East and North Africa Today (Oxford University Press, 2020). This twelve-chapter-volume brings together artistic practices and art histories informed by feminisms from diverse cultural and geographical contexts: Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey. Connecting scholars based in Europe and North America with those in the Middle East and North Africa, Under the Skin, through a consideration of translocal and transnational perspectives, offers an insight to different feminist and decolonial debates on art and visual culture across the area.
Co-editors Ceren Özpınar and Mary Kelly will be joined by chapter authors
Nadine Atallah, Isabelle De Le Court, Tal Dekel, Jessica Gerschultz, Lina M. Kattan and Somayeh Noori Shirazi
This live session will be accessible via the virtual platform
