IDEA is the Historians of Netherlandish Art subcommittee for inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility. With a view to fostering more inclusive and equitable language in writing and teaching about Netherlandish art, we are compiling a style guide as a resource for the membership of HNA.
We are soliciting insights and anecdotes from HNA members regarding processes of updating and changing terms used in scholarly and didactic material in academic and museum texts. Our primary aim is to get a sense of inclusive language efforts that our fellow scholars have already undertaken and cannot guarantee that we will adopt the exact terms recommended in responses to the survey.
Please fill out the survey, here, by June 5th, 2021. Thank you in advance for your responses, and please share with your colleagues!
