The Institute of Scottish Historical Research (University of St Andrews) is pleased to invite papers for Dress and Décor: Domestic Textiles and Personal Adornment in Scotland up to 1700, an interdisciplinary workshop to be held at the University of St Andrews in March 2018 as part of ISHR’s tenth-anniversary celebrations. With panel discussions and four diverse keynote presentations, the conference will seek to bring together a wide range of researchers from the burgeoning fields of Scottish history and dress and textile history in an interdisciplinary environment.
We hope to include a wide range of perspectives on the study of material culture history, including speakers from academic institutions, museum professionals, archaeologists, and historical crafts practitioners, and we welcome postgraduate students and early career/unaffiliated researchers.
Proposals for papers of 20 minutes in length will be accepted until 15th December 2017. Please see our CFP for submission details.
