Research Groups and Projects


The Gender and Sexuality Research Group at the Courtauld Institute of Art brings together scholars across time periods, to investigate the ways in which gender and sexuality has shaped or been shaped by the collective imagination and influenced visual culture. Public and internal events include lectures and talks, trips to exhibitions and archives, and work-in-progress seminars. Our summer 2020 Zoom seminar considers ‘feminist histories of blood’, with papers from medieval scholars and contemporary art historians. The group aims to promote feminist and queer approaches to art history at The Courtauld and beyond, offering a space to share new research and exchange ideas about key methodological and historical questions for scholars working on gender and sexuality in visual culture.

Convenors: Dr Rachel Warriner, Dr Jessica Barker, Dr Edwin Coomasaru
