Allison Leigh Book Cover The Art of MisogynyDr. Allison Leigh (Assistant Professor of Art History) has been awarded an ATLAS Grant (Awards to Louisiana Artists and Scholars) by the Board of Regents to write her second book, currently titled The Art of Misogyny: Toxic Masculinity from Delacroix to Picasso. In addition, a volume she is co-editing with Dr. Maria Taroutina, entitled Russian Orientalism in a Global Context: Hybridity, Encounter, and Representation has been contracted for publication by Manchester University Press.

Over the course of the spring and summer she also presented at five national and international conferences. She delivered a paper entitled “Edouard Manet’s Syphilis: Painting, Debility, and Adaptation in the 1880s” at the American Men’s Studies Association, a paper on “Using Digital Art History to Reassess the Catalogue Raisonné: The Case of Edouard Manet” for the (En)coding Heritage Seminar Series hosted by the University of Oxford, and a paper entitled “Masculinity and Partnership: The Artel of Artists, The Peredvizhniki, and Fraternal Values from 1863-1885” for an international conference held at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow on the subject of “The Peredvizhniki in the Context of Russian and European Culture: History of the Partnership of Traveling Art Exhibitions. Myth and Reality.” In April she presented on “Cultural Bilingualism in 18th-Century Russian Portraiture” at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies conference and a talk on “Delacroix’s Misogyny” at the annual conference of the Association for Art History.
