Women have not been only inspiration for the cultural world, but been also active as collectors or
researchers in collections. They have left their mark in science, natural history and art. Important
contributions to cite chronologically are those of Catherine the Great of Russia (1762-1796, art
collector), Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861, book collector), Mary Anning (1799 - 1847,
fossil collector) and Gertrude Bell (1868-1926, archaeologist who helped with the establishment of
the National Museum of Iraq with one of the best collections of Mesopotamian antiquities).
Although the role of women has been important in collections, it has not been so popular as with
males. This issue will display different roles in which women have been active in collections such as
active collectors, known by their input in collections or for inspiration.
Articles might be focused on any role played by women regarding collections:
* Women as collectors
* Women as collection researchers
* Women as inspirational point of view
* Women as collection subject
For this issue, we are seeking articles and case studies of 15-25 pages, reviews, technical columns,
and observations. See https://rowman.com/Page/Journals for more information about the journal.
For more information, contact the journal editor, Juilee Decker, firstname.lastname@example.org.
