The Journal of Women's History is soliciting articles for a special issue on women, material culture and consumption, guest edited by Clare Haru Crowston. We seek manuscripts from the broadest chronological, geographical and methodological range and from individuals residing around the world. Potential topics include comparative "consumer revolutions;" the gendering of consumption and material culture; fashion, luxury, and the exotic; family and the law in consumption; the relationship between production and consumption; and women's role in credit systems and market culture. The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2005.
Please send four one-sided, double-spaced copies of your manuscript (no more than 10,000 words, including endnotes) to the mailing address below. Mark the envelope "Attention: Clare Crowston." For more details on our submission policy see the web address below (and please note that the website is still under revision; the correction address for submitting manuscripts is above).
