The Journal of Modern Craft

Deadline: December 31, 2006.

The Journal of Modern Craft is the first peer-reviewed academic journal to provide an interdisciplinary and international forum for the rigorous analysis of craft.

The journal covers all aspects of craft as it exists within the condition of modernity (from the mid-19th century to the present day), without geographical or disciplinary boundary. Its editors welcome articles and reviews that analyze the relevance of craft to architecture, design, contemporary art, literature, and other fields, as well as the central disciplines of clay, wood, fiber, glass, metal, paper, etc.

The overall editorial objective is for the journal to support a mobile and wide-ranging contemporary discourse on craft as an issue in all creative fields, while also being an authoritative historical voice on the subject of craft as a field of historical practice in its own right.

The Journal of Modern Craft includes peer-reviewed articles; exhibition and book reviews; reflections on practice; and reprinted historical texts, sometimes in translation. The editors welcome suggestions and submissions for any of these sections.

The Journal of Modern Craft is edited by:

  • Glenn Adamson, Victoria & Albert Museum

  • Tanya Harrod, Royal College of Art

  • Edward S. Cooke, Yale University

  • Kevin Murray (book review editor), Crafts Victoria

  • Louise Mazanti (exhibition review editor), Danmarks Designskole

The journal will launch in March 2008.
