New Encounters: Arts, Cultures, Concepts

New Encounters: Arts, Cultures, Concepts
After theory: do we abandon ‘the theoretical turn’, or do we work with it differently? This timely series, figure-headed by eminent art historian and cultural analyst Griselda Pollock, brings together major international commentators and also introduces a new generation of thinkers. Resisting both the rejection of theory and the current displacement of art history in favour of visual culture, New Encounters instead rejuvenates both approaches. Marked out by its critical engagement with and close informed readings of images, texts and cultural events, this series employs new feminist, postcolonial and queer perspectives. New Encounters also showcases exciting new volumes which revisit key figures in twentieth century art through highly original feminist approaches.

Series editor: Griselda Pollock, Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art, and Director of the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory and History, University of Leeds.
