The Crafting, Crafters, and Craft Culture area is being launched for the 2018 conference to provide a home for considerations of the cultural labelling of craft in popular culture. Papers in this area might consider basic questions of art vs. craft as they intersect with gender or profitability; cultural histories of specific crafts; special collections in libraries, archives, or museums related to crafts; depictions of craft and crafters in media; craft media stars and their effect on culture; historical surveys of craft supply stores and shopping.

 

Some potential topics:

  • Gender and craft (is it art if a man makes it and craft if a woman makes it? what makes a craft feminine or masculine?)
  • Copyright and knockoffs (why is copyright different for recipes and clothing patterns than other intellectual products? what effect do cheap foreign copies have on the market for and perception of craft?)
  • Craft research resources (hand-on museums, text and realia collections)
  • Crafting and anthropology (how is the history of craft treated as part of human development?)
  • Craftivism (pussy hats, yarnbombing, subversive X-stitch motifs, etc.)
  • Craft as business (professional vs amateur crafting, selling products vs instructions)
  • Martha Stewart and other craft stars and their effect on culture
  • The effect of the Internet on craft culture
  • Representation of crafters in media and literature: Alison Hendrix (Orphan Black), Paris Gellar (Gilmore Girls), why they craft, comparison to how artists are depicted
  • Cultural sensitivity: appropriation, appreciation, adaptation, assimilation
