Daughters of Memory. Mothers of Knowledge.Goddesses of Inspiration. The Muses call upon us to bestow their graces of wisdom and creativity. But history shows the importance of asking the question: who answers, and whose responses are remembered? Women are historically more likely to be cast as “muse” than “artist,” as source of inspiration rather than as creator of “genius.” But that doesn’t mean women creators don’t exist. The Muses Are Calling blends feminist historiography, auto/biography, and mythology in a performative biomythography to explore the relationship between creative work and “women’s work” – and to recall some of the calls that have been missed. MATURE THEMES.
