Winterthur Portfolio


Winterthur Portfolio is a University of Chicago Press Journal. It is a testament to the Winterthur Museum’s longstanding commitment to generating new and innovative material culture research. This publication fosters knowledge of the North American past by publishing articles on material culture and the historical contexts within which artifacts developed. The journal presents scholarship that critically engages art history, history, geography, ethnology, archaeology, anthropology, folklife studies, and literature. We invite articles that are analytical and synthetic rather than descriptive, and we encourage interdisciplinary studies that integrate artifacts into a cultural framework.
