CALL FOR PAPERS
Textiles and Politics
Textile Society of America 13th Biennial Symposium
Abstracts Due: October 1, 2011
The Textile Society of America invites paper proposals for its upcoming symposium, Textiles & Politics, to be held in Washington, D.C. September 19-22, 2012. We seek presentations from all textile-related disciplines and interdisciplinary areas, including but not limited to anthropology, art, art history, conservation, cultural geography, design, economics, ethnic studies, history, linguistics, marketing, mathematics, political science, and theater. TSA encourages both organized sessions and individual papers from scholars, researchers, artists, gallery and museum professionals, and others from around the world. Symposium proceedings will be published early in 2013.
The theme of Textiles & Politics befits the symposium venue in the U.S. capital and will generate a lively discussion about the ways politics influence the aesthetics, production, materials, uses, and myriad other aspects of textiles.
