Welcome to the Women, Art & War series

December 17, 2009

Recognizing that warfare is a seemingly perpetual reality, Gender Across Borders has organized a series meant to reflect on the many roles women and art have played in instances of conflict. While they are by no means comprehensive, the eight articles that follow approach this topic from a range of perspectives, addressing both domestic and international concerns of the past and present. They do so through close formal analyses, first person narratives and observations of historical trends. Though the temperaments of the articles vary, we hope that as a whole they manage to strike chords in our readers and spark thoughts about how art can function as a means to more clearly comprehend, mourn, protest, and engage with the ugly as well as the beautiful sides of our world.

The series will run today and tomorrow and conclude with a selective survey of related events of 2009. We encourage participation on the part of readers through comments and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Your arts editors,

Abigail Colodner and Roxanne Samer
