Denney Receives Seibold Award from UW College of Arts and Sciences

November 26, 2012

Colleen Denney, director and professor in the University of Wyoming Gender and Women’s Studies Program, has received the College of Arts and Sciences Seibold Professorship for 2013-2014. The award recognizes demonstrated commitment to teaching.

During the professorship leave, she will conduct research in England, France, New Zealand and Wyoming on the visual culture of women’s suffrage. Information gathered will be used for several book projects and for a suite of courses on the visual culture of women’s activism.

The late Clarence Seibold of Cheyenne donated funds to support researchers in the humanities, social sciences and fine arts to do major projects even when they might not have external grant opportunities such as those available in the sciences.

An art historian, Denney teaches courses on the feminist visual culture of modern and contemporary art, most recently centered on activism. She also teaches courses on Victorian women’s art, literature and culture, and on the history of women artists.

Her recent books include "Women, Portraiture and the Crisis of Identity in Victorian England: My Lady Scandalous" and “Representing Diana, Princess of Wales: Cultural Memory and Fairy Tales Revisited.”
