Reclaiming Female Agency: Feminist Art History After Postmodernism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume is the third in an influential series of anthologies by editors Norma Broude and Mary D. Garrard that challenge art history from a feminist perspective. Following their Feminism and Art History: Questioning the Litany (1982) and The Expanding Discourse: Feminism and Art History (1992), this new volume identifies female agency as a central theme of recent feminist scholarship. Framed by a lucid and stimulating critical introduction, twenty-three essays on artists and issues from the Renaissance to the present, written in the 1990s and after, offer a nuanced critique of the poststructuralist premises of 1980s feminist art history.

Contributors: Allison Arieff, Janis Bergman-Carton, Babette Bohn, Norma Broude, Anna C. Chave, Julie Cole, Bridget Elliott, Mary D. Garrard, Sheila ffolliott, Darcy Grimaldo Grigsby, Ruth E. Iskin, Geraldline A. Johnson, Amelia Jones, Maud Lavin, Julie Nicoletta, Carol Ockman, Erica Rand, John B. Ravenal, Lisa Saltzman, Mary D. Sheriff

Synopsis:

"Extremely stimulating and useful. The authors lay out a strategy for future art historians and theorists."—Paula Harper, University of Miami

"I found the individual essays fascinating. . . . Broude and Garrard's introduction . . . helped clarify for me the current state of the affairs in feminist art history; their approach is both inspired and inspiring."— Sue Taylor, Associate Professor of Art History, Portland State University
