Journal Summary: Winterthur Portfolio 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. It includes articles that are analytical and synthetic rather than descriptive, and encourages interdisciplinary studies that integrate artifacts into a cultural framework.
