Date of event:   30/04/2019 − 30/04/2019

Call for Papers – Deadline: April 30, 2019

This international symposium will examine the past, present, and future of historical collections of textiles in European collections. While the papers will cover themes relevant to a wide range of textile collections across the continent, a special focus of the symposium will be on the collections of the Reutlingen University. The Reutlingen collection has been the subject of scholarly research over the last years and this symposium aims to publicize the collection, discuss the results of the surveys, and to create connections to other collections and other specialists working in the fields of western, Japanese, and pre-Columbian textile collections.
