Toward an Aesthetics of South Texas Women Artists

A two-year study and curricular development project on the theory and works of South Texas women artists and writers, for Texas A& M University faculty and Kingsville school teachers.

"Towards an Aesthetics of South Texas Women Artists,” seeks to study and listen to the underrepresented voices of women writers and artist from South Texas. Part of a larger regionalist project that “call[s] into question numerous cultural assumptions about literary history, poetics, thematics, genres, and reading strategies . . .” (Fetterley and Pryse 2), our proposal aims to recover and analyze regional artistic productions as modes of discourse about location (Fetterley and Pryse 11). We propose further to articulate a paradigm by which to discuss and characterize South Texas women’s art and literature in relation to the area, the larger traditions of women’s regionalist writing and art, and national discourses of nationhood.
