Main View © Sharon Lockhart

This international conference examines the role of women photographers

Through a call for papers and invited speakers, this public event aims to bring together key voices from across the globe. It will explore and identify critical themes and issues around how women work with photography and recognising their contributions to the medium’s history.

We will explore the wide range of working practices both historical and contemporary, addressing key themes in current photography research and celebrating important work being produced.

This conference coincides with the Dora Maar exhibition at Tate Modern this autumn. It follows conferences at Tate Modern in 2015 and National Gallery of Art in Lithuania in 2017.

Please note the programme is subject to minor edits prior to the event.

This event is organised in partnership with University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and London College of Communication (LCC) at University of the Arts London Photography (UAL), with support from The Leverhulme Trust International Network Grant.​
