Over the past century, paintings of the Great War have played an important role in shaping and expressing public memory of the conflict.  Indeed, many canvases—think, for example, of the Panthéon de la Guerre or John Singer Sargent’s iconic Gassed—have enjoyed just as much cultural prominence as photographs or works of cinema.  The Great War represents a “last hurrah” for painting as a significant form of cultural war remembrance.

I am seeking two other panelists and a chair for the June 1-4, 2017 Berkshires Conference on Women’s History at Hofstra University. This panel will consider how various forms of imagery (photography, painting, drawing, film, etc) have modified and created new understandings of women. As part of a larger project on the history of purses in American women’s lives, my paper will examine studio portraits of women, exploring the performative role purses played in shaping the identities of their holders.

BETWEEN UTOPIA AND DYSTOPIA: VISIONS OF GERMANY

 

2016 Germanic Graduate Student Association Conference

At The Ohio State University

 

Coined by Sir Thomas More in 1516, the word “utopia” — an amalgam of the ancient Greek οὐ (not), τόπος (place) and the classical Latin suffix –ia — describes, in its eponymous work, an imaginary island with a perfect social, legal, and political system. Despite the island’s perfection, More’s work leaves open the question of whether this non-place is truly ideal.
