In Spring 2013, Boston-area members of the Graduate Student Advocacy Committee kicked off a project to research, discuss, and take action on issues of gender in our profession. We began in March, by leading a workshop with 21 graduate students, curators, and artists from local institutions. (Download information about the event and the questions we discussed here.) As of May 2013, we have expanded our efforts by beginning to form working groups in the Boston area around specific areas of inquiry, on which the groups will conduct research and, eventually, take action. (Read about the 2013-14 working groups and how to get involved here.)
Stay tuned for: a proposal for summer reading, and announcements about Fall events.
