    Laura Mulvey and Griselda Pollock are both eminent feminist scholars, who have through their works, transformed the ways in which we engage with, and understand visual practices. It is over 30 years since Riddles of the Sphinx, Mulvey’s film collaboration with Peter Wollen (1977) was made. This unique event will explore the historical relevance and impact internationally, of feminist film practices on visual culture.

    Laura Mulvey is Professor of Film and Media Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London. Mulvey’s essay, Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema, written in 1973 and published in 1975 in the influential British film theory journal Screen, was one of the first major writings that helped shift the orientation of film theory towards a psychoanalytic framework. Influenced by the theories of Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan, Mulvey’s writings examined the intersection of film theory, psychoanalysis, and feminism. This seminal work later appeared in a collection of her essays entitled Visual and Other Pleasures. Mulvey is also author of: Visual and Other Pleasures (Macmillan 1989; second edition 2009), Fetishism and Curiosity (British Film Institute 1996), Citizen Kane (in the BFI Classics series 1996) and Death Twenty-four Times a Second: Stillness and the Moving Image (Reaktion Books 2006). She has made six films in collaboration with Peter Wollen including Frida Kahlo and Tina Modotti (Arts Council 1980), and Disgraced Monuments made with artist/film-maker Mark Lewis (Channel 4, 1994).

    Griselda Pollock is Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art at the University of Leeds. She a prominent art historian and cultural analyst, and a world-renowned scholar of international, post-colonial feminist studies in the visual arts. She is best known for her theoretical and methodological innovation, combined with deeply engaged readings of historical and contemporary art, film and cultural theory. Since 1977, Pollock has been one of the most influential scholars of modern, avant-garde art, postmodern art, and contemporary art. She is also a major influence in feminist theory, feminist art history and gender studies. Pollock studied Modern History at Oxford and History of European Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Her many publications include: Old Mistresses; Women, Art and Ideology, London Routledge & Kegan (Griselda Pollock with Rozsika Parker), 1981; Aesthetics. Politics. Ethics Julia Kristeva 1966-96, Special Issue Guest Edited parallax, no. 8, 1998; Vision and Difference: Feminism, Femininity and the Histories of Art, London Routledge and New York Methuen, 1987; The Sacred and the Feminine, edited by Griselda Pollock and Victoria Turvey-Sauron. London I.B. Tauris, 2008.

    Sutapa Biswas is an artist, and Reader at Chelsea College of Art and Design, CCW, UAL.

    TrAIN Associate Project: Photography Forum: 5th November 2010

    Photography Forum: Photographic Portraiture – Transgressive and Transformative Potentials
    5 November 2010, 10:00-18:00, Chelsea Green Room

    This one-day photography forum explores the debates connected with photographic identities in the light of transnational, transcultural and transgender politics. At the same time, the forum sets out to challenge all too formative expectations of the interplay between depicted sitter, photographer and image in relation to the various perceptions of its respective viewers. During the day, we will engage in discursive approaches to images of human nature today – that is to say: after the ‘post-human’ and the supposed ‘death of portraiture’. Additionally, this forum aims at establishing common ground among early and mid-career researchers within UAL with a view to possible future research collaborations.

    The forum will take the form of an informal ‘round table’ discussion with two panels: ´Re-Thinking Identities of Photographic Portraiture´ in the morning, and ´Trans-Portraiture: Nation, Gender, Culture´ in the afternoon. Presentations – by both artists and theoreticians – will vary in style including theoretical, practice-led, performative and audio-visual investigations into the subject matter. Papers will be pre-circulated, so the invited speakers will not only present their research but also respond to one of the other presentations.

    Speakers include:
    Jon Cairns, Senior Lecturer (BA Fine Art, CSM)
    Beverley Carruthers, Course Director (BA Photography, LCC)
    Bruno Ceschel, Associate Lecturer (BA Photography, LCC)
    Steve Cross, Course Director (BA Media and Cultural Studies, LCC)
    Daphne Plessner, Course Director (BA Book Arts, LCC)
    Dr Jonathan Wright, Senior Lecturer (Media and Cultural Studies, LCC)

    Chairs:
    Prof Oriana Baddeley, Deputy Director at TrAIN
    Prof Elizabeth Edwards, Senior Research Fellow at PARC

    Conveners:
    Dr Sara Davidmann, AHRC Research Fellow, LCC
    Dr Wiebke Leister, Associate Director PARC
