The Journal of Modern Craft is the first peer-reviewed academic journal to provide an interdisciplinary and international forum in its subject area. It addresses all forms of making that self-consciously set themselves apart from mass production—whether in the making of designed objects, artworks, buildings, or other artefacts.
It covers all aspects of craft as it exists within the condition of modernity (conceived as roughly from the mid-19th century to the present day), without geographical or disciplinary boundary. Its editors welcome articles that analyze the relevance of craft to architecture, design, contemporary art, and other fields, as well as the central disciplines of clay, wood, fiber, glass, metal, paper, etc.
The Journal of Modern Craft was launched in March 2008 and is published by Taylor & Francis three times a year. The journal is edited by Glenn Adamson (Senior Scholar, Yale University), Elissa Auther (Windgate Research Curator, Museum of Art and Design and Bard Graduate Center, New York), Edward S. Cooke Jr. (Yale University), Tanya Harrod (Independent Scholar, London), Stephen Knott (Kingston University) and Jenni Sorkin (University of California, Santa Barbara). Namita Wiggers (Critical Craft Forum) and Joseph McBrinn (University of Ulster) are the exhibition and book review editors, respectively.
The website serves as a portal to the print journal, but also complements its objectives with blog posts and other extra material such as author interviews, reviews, links to other websites and forum discussion. Find out more here.
