Research is hard enough, right? It's even harder when your subject matter is fairly recent, newly emerged, and from a discipline that does more making than writing.
After receiving several requests, I've decided to make my reading list(s) public, as a resource to others interested in craftivism, socially engaged craft, and contemporary ceramics. To be fair, I haven't read all of these books, but I've read parts of most of them, and look forward to continued research beyond grad school.
If you're keeping up with my progress on my MA project "Craftivist Clay: Resistance and Activism in Contemporary Ceramics," thanks and stay tuned! I should be able to direct you to a published copy sometime this summer.
If you have other questions, get at me! @maryminimally on twitter and insta, and firstname.lastname@example.org
