- Call for Proposals: Women and Material Culture of Death
We invite proposals for essays for a collection titled Women and the
Material Culture of Death. This collection invites researchers and
scholars to consider women’s engagement with the material world of
death, from the most ordinary, mundane ritualized practices and
objects to the most extraordinary.
As Hallam and Hockey note, material practices related to death traverse time and space. Historically, women in many cultures have had a central role in crafting objects to commemorate the dead, such as weaving shrouds, creating mourning clothes, crafting death masks, designing grave markers, stitching memorial samplers, creating hair jewelry, to name but a scant few. Women have also attended to death practices for non-humans, from butchery and cookery methods, to taxidermy of wild animals and beloved pets, to drying flowers and other plants, and repurposing objects related to death. br />
We encourage scholars and researchers who focus on specific social and material practices bounded by time and place that are related to any aspect of death in which women have participated. These practices might relate to preparation for death, rituals or social actions prior, during, and following the disposal of the body, to commemorative acts meant to keep memory of the deceased alive. In short, the possibility of topics and scholarly methods is wide open so long as they connect women to some aspect of death.
We look forward to proposals from a wide variety of disciplines, including, but not limited to, art history, anthropology, history, literature, rhetoric, cultural studies, communication studies, museum studies, visual studies, race studies, and women’s studies. We encourage and wish to present multiple theoretical frames and methodologies that grapple with questions concerning women and the material culture of death.
Please send your 250-500-word proposal and a CV as electronic attachments in MS-word or RTF format to Beth Fowkes Tobin (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Maureen Daly Goggin (email@example.com) by September 1, 2010.
