We are very pleased to announce that independent scholar Dr. Aliza Edelman, who joined the journal as book reviews editor in 2018 (upon the retirement of Ute Tellini), became the co-editor-chief of WAJ with Joan Marter in October 2021. Aliza specializes in global feminisms and the transnational histories of abstraction in modern and contemporary art.
Dr. Alison Poe, a specialist in the reception of Greek and Roman antiquity within a variety of gendered historical and pop-cultural contexts, is the new book reviews editor.
Old City Publishing and WAJ’s extended circle of staff members, board members, and contributors past and present offer profound thanks and wish the utmost happiness to Margaret Barlow, editorial partner of Woman’s Art Journal with Elsa Honig Fine since its founding in 1980, upon her retirement after forty-two years as innovator and copy editor. With her tireless dedication, high standards of scholarship, and calm, good-humored disposition, Peggy enabled the journal to thrive in the difficult terrain of feminist art publications.
