We have put together a series of Chad’s mini Zoom lectures for the month of June on Wednesdays 6 – 7pm.  The format will be a 35/40 minute lecture followed by questions and conversation.  Here’s the schedule:

  • Wednesday June 3rd: J. R. Watson, Professor Emeritus, Durham University: The Voice of Philip Larkin.
  • Wednesday June 10th: Martin Ward, Temple Chevalier Professor of Astronomy at Durham: Are We Alone in the Universe?
  • Wednesday June 17th: Lucy Whelan, Art Historian and Visiting Fellow in the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture, Durham University: Seeing, hiding, and finding women in modern art: the case of Marthe Bonnard.

This week’s lecture is by SCR member Dr Lucy Whelan who will be talking on:

Seeing, hiding, and finding women in modern art: the case of Marthe Bonnard

This talk asks how women have appeared in the history of modern art, introducing topics like the “male gaze”. It focuses in particular on the case of the modern artist Pierre Bonnard and his wife and model Marthe, whose life story and reputation has been systematically distorted and overlooked until now.
