This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

"I think the world will come to an end amid the general applause from all the wits who believe that it is a joke." - Søren Kierkegaard
In 2016 and 2017, LGBT homicides more than doubled those of previous years. In 2017, the US President Donald Trump attempted to ban transgender military personnel via twitter. The Doomsday clock is set at two minutes to midnight. In response, the Queer Cultures Research Seminar series (University of Cambridge) is holding a one day conference to address queer engagements with and resistances to the 'end times'.
