The Graduate Students of Art History, University of Washington (GSAH), is a volunteer organization made up of the Art History Division graduate body within the UW School of Art + Art History + Design. The goal of the GSAH is to promote cultural knowledge of and interest in art and art history among the UW community and beyond. We aim to establish relationships and networks across the University’s departments and the community at large.
We at the GSAH believe that we must be attuned to questions of diversity and its implications on our field. Thus, we have created GSAH Reading Group, Dismantling The Canon, which aims to create an inclusive and actively anti-racist art history by seeking out, researching, and teaching the work of artists and scholars that are often left on the margins. Dismantling the Canon organizes a series of monthly discussion sessions focused on a specific theme, concluded with a talk by a guest speaker at the end of each quarter. We further create additional content in the forms of syllabi and bibliographies to expand existing art history curricula.
To extend our public reach and make the knowledge we collect and create available to the public, the GSAH is looking for a web designer to help build our organization’s website through WordPress. As a non-profit, we are able to offer $500 compensation generously provided by the UW Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF). We ask that interested designers please send a sample of their work and any questions they have to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, January 22nd, 2021. We will respond to any interested designers by Friday, February 19th, 2021.
