WAA.062

Feminist Art History Conference; AAH Conference, Brighton; 1986

None of the speakers are known and we need to undertake research on the conference. The recording begins with a confused muddle in which there is no moderator or understanding of what should happen next. The discussion, which is mixed (both men and women) discuss the 'semi-paralysis' in which they find themselves.

This appears to be the first occasion the group have come together under the banner of 'Feminist Art History', and they are divided according to whether there should be women only spaces within the conference. The organisational structures and how they are delineated extends to details such as non-hierarchical seating systems.
