The 2015 David B. Warren Symposium on American Material Culture and the Texas Experience invites proposals for papers on the experiences of women within visual arts and material culture, with a specific focus on pre-1900 Texas. The symposium will explore the ways in which women have participated in and contributed to these fields, with subjects of interest including “traditional arts and crafts produced by women; participation in or support of traditionally male creative activities, as well as women’s influence through their choices and consumption.”

The Material Culture Symposium for Emerging Scholars, which will be held in April of 2015, is also accepting proposals, looking for papers that address the question of “What happens when a thing goes bad?” The symposium welcomes interdisciplinary explorations of material culture studies that consider and re-conceptualize the relationship between human agents and material objects.
Those interested should visit here for specific details.
