Women & Masks: A Transdisciplinary Arts-Research Conference
Sep 24, 2021 - Apr 24, 2022
A TRANSDISCIPLINARY ARTS-RESEARCH CONFERENCE
Women and Masks is an international, web-based arts-research conference hosted by Boston University. It is open to anyone, and attendees can register for single or multiple events with no registration fee. The conference, which will take place across four weekends during the 2021–2022 academic year, explores the myriad intersections of the subjects, masks and women. The pairing is intended to create a thematic, yet open-ended framing, giving rise to juxtapositions and rapprochements, generating unexpected insights. These insights are expected to lead to a rich inquiry into the significance of masking practices as they connect to women.
Four weekends of talks, workshops, papers, panels, and performances explore the intersections of the subjects, masks and women. This international, arts-research conference is free and open to anyone. Register for single or multiple events by joining the mailing list below.
