CFP: [Gender Studies] The Women Collector

Annalisa Zox-Weaver

This special issue of Women’s Studies will examine the woman art collector.

While there are certainly women collectors whose interests tend toward more
feminine-associated artifacts, such as jewels, fans, and lace, or work with
domestic affiliations, such as embroidery, textiles, furniture, and
glasswork, there are also women collectors who have ventured into new
areas, amassing collections that in some cases make them the twentieth
century creators of museums.
