Call for Papers
In response to Call for Proposals, CAA 106th Annual Conference, Los Angeles CA, February 21–24, 2018 http://www.collegeart.org/programs/conference/, we are composing a Complete Session Proposal “Masters: Women in Art and Architecture” focused on presenting women-architects and artists, women-makers and educators, hidden or forgotten in collective histories. This session is critical to bridging professional readings and analyzing professional settings for women architects and artists across borders and cultural divides. We are interested in papers that explore and examine views of gender bias within art and architectural practices across varying cultures, and how this historiography is recorded. We welcome studies on the ways art and architectural education address the gender space and reflect on practitioners, in particular related to craftsmanship and production, and in response to women’s professional strategies as they impact new generations. We invite theoretically, historically, and ethnographically grounded contributions that fill blind spots and explore the life of masters: women in art and architecture.
