Women and Gender Studies Brown Bag: 'Mixed Media Art in the Continuing Age of Anxiety'

Wednesday, 13 November, 2019

The Department of Women and Gender Studies (WGS) will hold a Brown Bag talk and discussion from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13, in Room 144, McGannon Hall.

Deborah Douglas, M.F.A., of the Studio Art Program in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts, will present, “Mixed Media Art in the Continuing Age of Anxiety.”

Talk Abstract

Douglas will discuss the processes and inspirations for her mixed media artwork. Her interests lie in the expansive issues of domesticity: typically including references to food, interpersonal relationships, and to cultural and societal issues of gender and sexual equality and empowerment. She addresses these issues sometimes darkly, sometimes with humor, though often with both.

Each semester the WGS department sponsors a brown bag lunch series at which speakers present their research and engage the audience in discussion about the topic. The topics vary, as do the disciplines of the speakers and the points of view they represent. These informal settings provide opportunities to learn about the range of Women's and Gender Studies scholarship and to meet students and faculty with similar interests.

Participants should bring their lunches.

A snack and drinks are provided.

The session is sponsored by the Department of Women and Gender Studies.
