  1. Dear Sirs,

    I am an art history student at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London and I have recently completed an essay entitled Producing Social Space Through Lived Experience: A Brief History of The Woman’s Building in Los Angeles (1973 – 1991) , under the supervision of Professor Julia Bryan Wilson from Berkeley University who is a visiting professor at the Courtauld this year.

    The essay provides an alternative reading of the history of The Woman’s Building, an artist run and feminist space in Los Angeles which largely influenced the developement of both cultural and social life in California in the 1970s and 1980s.
    In this essay, I am discussing the organization’s almost twenty year long history in relation to the production of social space and the emergence of ‘counter publics’, through the lens of Henri Lefebvre’s “The Production of Space” (1974).

    I was wondering whether you would be potentially interested in such a contribution to your journal.
