Formatted abstract
Is second wave feminism something that can be collected? Does it even have a material culture? If so, what would a second wave feminist object be? This issue of the Journal of Australian Studies places feminism and the museum together to find whether Australian museum practice and feminist culture resonate or not, and whether social movements such as feminism are amenable to collection and exhibition in the public sphere. Our primary interest is in museums as institutions that collect items of cultural, historical and scientific value; however, the broader, European definition of museums, which includes art collections, can also yield invaluable insights regarding the relations between feminism and the museum.
