Creators and Consumers, Women and Material Culture: The David B. Warren Symposium, Volume 5


At the fifth biennial David B. Warren Symposium, seven scholars examined contributions made by women to the material culture of nineteenth-century Texas, the Lower South, and the Southwest. The resulting papers explore such diverse topics as women’s creative enterprises in Texas, their artistic contributions, as seen in the making of fine art, quilts, sunbonnets, and memorial hairwork pieces, and their role in adapting personal spaces such as an antebellum parlor and African-American homes after the Civil War.
