"Thinking Women: Art and Representation in the Eighteenth Century" was organized by Dr. Melissa Hyde to accompany the Harn Museum's exhibition "Becoming a Women in the Age of Enlightenment" (co-organized by Dr. Melissa Hyde and Dr. Mary Sheriff). The event featured leading historians and art historians of eighteenth and early nineteenth century Europe, whose presentations ranged from explorations of gender, race, and representation, to women and the visual arts. Their talks encompassed cultural, philosophical, political and social debates that are as pressing today as they were during the Age of Enlightenment.
"Thinking Women: Art and Representation in the Eighteenth Century" was sponsored by the Harn Eminent Scholar Chair in Art History (HESCAH) series, and by generous contributions from the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere (Rothman Endowment), UF Department of History, UF International Center, and Center for Gender, Sexualities and Women's Studies Research (CGSWR).
