We are excited to announce that Prof. Janet Wolff, a widely published author on the sociology of art, culture, gender, modernism, and aesthetics, will be coming to Birmingham for one evening only! Janet will give a talk about her most recent literary accomplishments and art historical research, in the sumptuous surroundings of the Barber Institute of Fine Art's lecture theatre, after which there will be time for a Q&A session, and free refreshments in the Barber Institute Foyer. The scope of this evening's content make it an interesting event not just for art historians, but for sociology and philosophy students, as well as those interested in feminist theory.

Janet Wolff is an Emeritus Professor of the University of Manchester, and has previously taught at the University of Rochester and University of Leeds. Her most recent publications include The Social Production of Art (1981/1993), Aesthetics and the Sociology of Art (1983/1993), Feminine Sentences: Essays on Women and Culture (1990), Resident Alien: Feminist Cultural Criticism (1995), AngloModern: Painting and Modernity in Britain and the United States (2003), and The Aesthetics of Uncertainty (2008).

The evening will begin with the talk at 17:30, and refreshments will finish at 19:00.
