Creators and Consumers: Women and Material Culture and Visual Art in 19th Century Texas, the Lower South, and the Southwest, 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.
