Ashgate Publishing Group has released a new book by art historian Susan Shifrin, Ph.D. ’98. Re-framing Representations of Women: Figuring, Fashioning, Portraiting and Telling in the ‘Picturing’ Women Project draws on an ambitious exhibition, education, and outreach project organized by Shifrin and co-sponsored by Bryn Mawr’s Center for Visual Culture, the Library Company of Philadelphia, and the Rosenbach Museum & Library. Crossing disciplinary and chronological boundaries, Re-framing Representations of Women integrates text and image, essays and object pages to explore the processes inherent in gender representation, rather than resituating women in particular categories or spheres.

Shifrin is Associate Director for Education at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art and Assistant Professor of Art History at Ursinus College.
