Bundel waarin de creativiteit van vrouwen genalyseerd wordt. In "The reality of women" door Iris Bünsch wordt de rol van de vrouw geanalyseerd als heilige, moeder of hoer, zoals die in de Westerse cultuur geconstrueerd is. "Creativity with a place to go" door Jean Baker Miller behandelt de persoonlijke groei van vrouwen en haar creatieve ontwikkeling, en de culturele constructie van een sociale identiteit. In "Amongst the ghosts" door Christine Battersby gaat het om de relatie tussen gender en creativiteit en het ideaal van het mannelijke. In "Why have there been no great women artists?" door Linda Nochlin aandacht voor de geschiedenis van met name feministische kunst. In "The female experience and artistic creativity" door Joelynn Snyder-Ott onderzoekt de auteur het onderscheid tussen mannelijke en vrouwelijke 'experience'. In "An aesthetic of blackness: strange and oppositional" door Bell Hooks staat het esthetische centraal en wordt de cultuur van de Afro-Amerikanen beschreven en hun zoeken naar identiteit. "The point of view; Universal or particular?" door Monique Wittig gaat over vrouwelijk schrijven en de politieke invloed daarvan. "The artist as woman" door Patricia Meyer Spacks geeft een analyse van schrijfsters als Carrington, Anderson, MacLane en MacCarthy. In "Variations on negation and the heresy of black feminist creativity" door Michele Wallace staat de creativiteit van zwarte vrouwen centraal.

Religion and the arts : history and method by Diane Apostolos-Cappadona( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diane Apostolos-Cappadona presents an overview of the 19th century origins of this discrete field of study and its methodological journey to the present-day through issues of repatriation, museum exhibitions, and globalization. Apostolos-Cappadona suggests that the fluidity and flexibility of the study of religion and the arts has expanded like an umbrella since the 1970s - and the understanding that art was simply a visual exegesis of texts - to now support the study of material, popular, and visual culture, as well as gender. She also delivers a careful analysis of the evolution of thought from traditional iconographies to the transformations once scholars were influenced by response theory and challenged by globalization and technology
The sword of Judith : Judith studies across the disciplines by Kevin R Brine( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Book of Judith tells the story of a fictitious Jewish woman beheading the general of the most powerful imaginable army to free her people. The parabolic story was set as an example of how God will help the righteous. Judith's heroic action not only became a validating charter myth of Judaism itself but has also been appropriated by many Christian and secular groupings, and has been an inspiration for numerous literary texts and works of art. It continues to exercise its power over artists, authors and academics and is becoming a major field of research in its own right. The Sword of Judith is the first multidisciplinary collection of essays to discuss representations of Judith throughout the centuries. The collection includes new archival source studies, the translation of unpublished manuscripts, the translation of texts unavailable in English, and Judith images and music
