Given the growing number of MAs and PhDs available in electronic form, n.paradoxa wants to provide an accessible route to this research on contemporary women artists and feminist art.
Careful searching of this project also highlights many trends and tendencies in feminist research across different countries.

n.paradoxa does not claim this project captures “all” theses written on this subject, but they searched widely across the net to find these 1171.
They have also provided information about some of the publications which have resulted from this research.

n.paradoxa would very much like you to check if it contains theses you are aware of and maybe those you have written or supervised.

If not, they invite you to add to this project by filling in the form on their website.
n.paradoxa especially needs your help to map research in many countries like Japan, Russia, Korea, China etc where no English access point is used in national search engines and libraries for etheses or dissertations. They are aware that there are many art schools or Universities where students may have conducted research into feminist art, but the institutions have not joined any electronic thesis collection or database system.

This project was created by Frances Hatherley and Katy Deepwell at Middlesex University between Jan-May 2015.


Ouroboros - o el oximoron orbital de los lenguajes: Marta Bernardes

Uma exposição sobre os limites da linguagem e a sua solução e dissolução contínua a partir dos processos poéticos. A arte conceptual e a poesia visual revisitadas desde um lugar feminino, onde o prazer do jogo e da possibilidade de sentido são levados ao interior de uma tradição que esqueceu o prazer vital da beleza, da diversão, do poema.

Feminist Duration in Art and Curating

Goldsmiths, Department of Art, Research Symposium
16th and 17th March, 2015

This two-day research symposium considers the resonance of feminist art, thinking and collectivity in contemporary life. Riffing on Amelia Jones' concept of 'queer feminist durationality,' it explores feminist legacies, potentials and pitfalls to examine how tactics and strategies from earlier movements and projects are being re-examined and redeployed today. Concerned with the dangers of romanticising earlier struggles and succumbing to Left melancholy, the symposium looks at how feminisms in art and curating contribute to a constellation of cultural production. Such speculations open up the differences in intention and reception across place, time and context.

Kajsa Dahlberg (Berlin and Malmö), Claire Fontaine (Paris), Laura Guy (Goldsmiths), Rehana Zaman (Goldsmiths), Helena Reckitt (Goldsmiths), Louise Shelley (The Showroom, London), art historian Catherine Grant (Goldsmiths), Nina Power (University of Roehampton).
