Dr Janine Burke

  • I’m an art  historian, biographer, novelist and curator.

    After graduating  from the University of Melbourne  in  1974, I curated ‘Australian  Women Artists: 1840-1940′ and, the following year, co-founded the Victorian Women’s Art Movement and LIP, a feminist arts journal.

    From 1977-1982, I  lectured in art history  at the  Victorian College of the Arts. I resigned to explore a long cherished ambition to write fulltime and spent the next years living in Italy and France.
