This alphabetical list is comprised of global practitioners and scholars, both historical and contemporary. It started with conference presenters and has expanded somewhat incidentally and idiosyncratically.  It is in a constant state of development and is by no means comprehensive. The goal is to support the visibility of those who work in this area. Some entires have a Women & Masks page and some link to external websites. Others are still in need of information. If you would like to contribute or have updates, please contact us at

This database is updated frequently and is, by no means, meant to be comprehensive.
