CALL FOR PAPERS: Dress and Textile Collections amidst Covid-19
DATS invites submissions for this one-day online conference which explores the theme of dress and textile collections amidst Covid-19.
The global pandemic has altered the way many of us interact with dress and textile collections. DATS would like to explore ways museums, libraries, historic houses and universities are managing their dress and textile collections, during lockdown and after easing. DATS also invites you to share novel approaches used to engage audiences when sites were closed, tours limited and research visits reduced. We want to uncover how a need for adaptability and flexibility in the workplace has led to innovative ideas and case studies that could be implemented in dress and textile collections worldwide.
The deadline for abstracts is Friday 25th September 2020.
The conference will take place on 27 November 2020.
We are still planning to organise a conference on the theme Does Size Really Matter? in 2021.
