Current events in Special Collections

“Exploring the different forms of distribution, promotion, and preservation performed by these archives that were once living networks, All My Independent Women 2012 searches for new modes of accountability and circulation within the arts that are based on dialogue with a potential for re-invention.”

Right now there is a ‘video lounge’ set up in Special Collections (with bean bags!) showing a selection of videowork by women artists curated by PhD student Carla Cruz. The project is called AMIW 2012 (AMIW= All My Independent Women) and is available to view any time. The Special Collections office is open: Mon-Fri 9.15-17.00 and until 19.00 on Wednesdays. This is open to all students and will be available until 16th December

Tomorrow evening (Friday 28th) there will be a workshop from 5pm to 7pm titled “Practicing Sexual Difference” that is related to Carla Cruz’s project. Althea Greenan (Senior Library Assistant for Special Collections) will be on site and looking after these events. 
There are more workshops scheduled for October 10th, November 2nd and 9th and December 5th. For more information on these go to
