In March 2016, Joy Sperling was awarded an R.C. Good Faculty Fellowship to complete a book manuscript on the “Female Embodiment of an Enchanted State: Women and Visual Culture in New Mexico, 1920-1950.” The study examines the multiple ways in which women’s visual culture between the world wars briefly feminized and domesticated, through tourism, travel, art, design, decoration, and dress, a previously dominant, highly masculine narrative of New Mexico as a state populated by “real men” who ranched, raided, lived beyond the law. The study examines critically the work of numerous women not previously studied in the scholarship of the region.
