Antennae – Alternative Ornithologies Special Issue

To coincide with the opening of the exhibition Fashioning Feathers: Dead Birds, Millinery Crafts and the Plumage Trade at the Royal Alberta Museum I guest-edited a special issue of Antennae: the Journal of Nature in Visual Culture dedicated to art, plumage and birds.

Contributors include: Amanda Boetzekes, Kate Foster, Liz Gomez, Kirsteen Greer, Hayden Lorimer, Kate MccGwire, Marine Pacault, Merle Patchett, Rachel Poliquin, Perdita Phillips, Andrea Roe and Maria Whiteman.

Their papers deal with the intersections of fashion and taste; capitalism and colonialism; science, crafts and popular culture; species, bodies and imagined creatures; and exhibitions and pedagogy via objects as well as materiality and virtuality.
