Textiles and Fibres Through Time
The deadline for the CALL FOR POSTERS has been extended to the 31st October. This exciting symposium will take place on Saturday, 21st November at the Helen Roe Theatre, 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2.
Posters on topics relevant to the theme of the conference are very welcome.
Poster presenters will have FREE registration.
The aim of the symposium is to explore the history, archaeology, economics and sociology of the raw materials, production, and use of textiles and fibres, with a particular emphasis on Ireland. Speakers may wish to consider issues such as: How did the development of new or improved agricultural and production techniques affect society? How were choices in clothing design and/or production a reflection of identity? What were the driving forces in the evolution of textile or fibre production? Who were the gainers and losers?
Speakers and poster presentations are invited from a diverse range of backgrounds including archaeology, history, economics, folk-life and sociology. Papers will be 20 minutes in length, with time for questions. A poster session with mini-presentations of 5 minutes will also be held.
