Key Note Speaker

Dr. Rachel Epp Buller maintains a dual critical and creative practice as an art historian and printmaker / book artist. Much of her writing addresses intersections of art and the maternal, including her book, Reconciling Art and Mothering  and an in-progress book on Inappropriate Bodies. In her recent creative work, she investigates fictional narratives of imagined family histories and matrilineal traditions of fine handwork. She privileges collaborative projects, both within the visual arts and across disciplines, and specifically chose a transnational and transdisciplinary program when she returned to school last year to pursue an MFA in Creative Practice at Plymouth University's Transart Institute. She is a board member of the National Women's Caucus for Art (US), a Fulbright Scholar, a regional coordinator of The Feminist Art Project, and current Associate Professor of Visual Arts and Design at Bethel College (US).
