In recent years, thanks in part to projects such as Women of the Rijksmuseum and The Other Half - Women in the Dutch Art World, 1780-1970, women’s work in museums is finally receiving more attention from national and international scholars alike. Sign up using the link below.
Event details of Workshop Women and Museums: Research in Progress
11 July 2024
15:00 -17:00
OMHP C1.17
Women in Museums, Hallie Bateman, 2016

The renewed interest in this topic and the range of possible approaches and perspectives  raises questions, such as: what is the state of research precisely at the moment? What methodologies and theoretical frameworks are useful in studying women in museums? Could a common ground be established and future lines of research mapped out that will embed women in museum history in a sustainable manner?

The workshop Women and Museums: Research in Progress brings together several researchers from different institutions who are developing their projects and aim to address these questions. Laia Anguix-Vilches, postdoctoral fellow at Radboud University, will elaborate on her project "Women Museum Managers: A History of Pioneering Women in the Management of European Cultural Heritage Institutions". Bram Donders, researcher at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, will discuss his recent research findings regarding women who donated and bequeathed artworks to this museum from 1849 to the present day. On behalf of ASH, Mariëlle Ekkelenkamp will share some initial investigations into female patrons of the Rembrandt Association who were directly involved in museum work; and Alicia Cartagena García-Alcaraz, visiting PhD Fellow from the University of Murcia, will present her ongoing research on gender perspectives in European national museums. Lastly, we will open the discussion to the audience, critically reassess our methodological frameworks and find common notes and points of intersection in our different approaches to the topic.

Afterwards, there will be drinks at a nearby café

Deadline for signing up is 4 July.
