Reviews

One of our goals at ASWM is to draw attention to films, books, and other resources that will serve scholars and inform the general public. We invite scholars in a variety of fields to write our reviews.

Books:

Films:

  • Pink Smoke Over the Vatican, by Jules Hart, about Roman Catholic women’s fight to become ordained priests; reviewed by Patricia Monaghan.
  • Creating Buddhas, by Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, about an American woman who has mastered the ancient (and traditionally male) art of Tibetal thangka needlework.  Reviewed by Lydia Ruyle.
  • A Woman to Match A MountainNeal Forsling and Crimson Dawn by Karen Snyder, about a woman artist who created a “fairy tale” myth in 20th century Wyoming.  Reviewed by Sid Reger.

Museum Exhibitions:

  • Mami Wata:  Arts for Water Spirits in Africa and its Diasporas, U Wisconsin Museum, review by Sid Reger, Ed.D.
