Textiles & Fashion Research Group Seminar Series
Initiated in 2014 in the School of Historical & Philosophical Studies, the Textiles and Fashion Research Group (formerly the Textiles Reading Group) draws together academics, curators, textile experts and fashion creatives working across a varied range of fields, from Renaissance modes of luxury, dress in China, Islamic textiles, and early modern undergarments, to Australian colonial and twentieth-century dress. Founded by Antonia Finnane and convened by doctoral candidate Laura Jocic, the group meets once a month during semester.
Originally conceived as an informal gathering with a monthly focused reading programme, from mid 2020 the textiles reading group has gathered more formally with a seminar program. Due to COVID-19, these seminars are conducted online at present but it is hoped that soon they will be held in person at the Parkville Campus, University of Melbourne.
Details of the Semester One 2022 seminar papers can be found on the Textiles & Fashion Research Group page on the Emporium website.
