Because textiles are used so broadly— from the necessities of shelter\, such as clothing\, fabric structures\, and bedding; to luxuries\, such as ornamental embroidery for embellishing the home or body; to cultural symbols\, such as religious vestments—the dissemination of their making also ranges broadly\, across place and time. We welcome proposals for case studies\, comparisons\, or thematic approaches from across history and around the globe. \nFor more information or to view the symposium’s call for papers\, visit You may also contact Prof. Marina Moskowitz at or 608.262.2015. \n URL: LOCATION:UW-Madison School of Human Ecology\, 1300 Linden Dr.\, Madison\, WI\, 53706\, United States CATEGORIES:Colloquium,Public Lecture ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
