Remembrances of Things Past: Silent Voices in Collections
Prior work has found that collectors often counter the charge that they are materialistic and frivolous by invoking their mythical role as noble saviors of artistically, historically, or scientifically important objects neglected by larger society. This paper suggests that rather than invoke this masculine myth, many collectors instead see themselves as conduits of more intimate meanings linked to the lives of the object’s makers or prior owners. In this more feminine role the collector takes on a vital role in a perceived community of caring.
