"Tattooing as Artistic Practice: Histories, Theories and Methods"

Dr Matt Lodder is a lecturer in contemporary art at the University of Essex in Colchester, UK. His research focuses on the history of professional Western tattoo practices, particularly in Britain, as well as the theoretical and methodological problems posed by considering tattooing through an art-historical lens. Matt's work has featured in major newspapers and magazines around the world, and he is a frequent contributor to both radio and television. He has recently been invited to give lectures at the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Horniman Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum in London. His first book, Tattoo: An Art History will be published in late 2014.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
