LYNNE BELL, associate professor and head of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Saskatchewan, is a historian of visual culture whose recent work has focused on two collaborative research projects funded by SSHRC: the first (with Carol Williams, Rutgers University) investigates the diverse practices of women artists, curatorsand educators in Canada; the second (with Janice Williamson, University of Alberta) investigates interdisciplinary cul-tural practices on the prairies. Interviews conducted in these research projects are appearing in West Coast Line, BC Studies, and Tessera, among other journals. In 1996, she was guest curator of Urban Fic-tions for Presentation House Gallery in North Vancouver, a group exhibition which focused on the mixed cultures, histories and subjectivities of the contemporary city. She has also given numerous papers on the role of visual culture in the construction of the touristic nation and she is currently preparing this research for publication.
