Dress under the Microscope: Contributions of Science and Technology to the Study of Early Modern Dress

Thursday and Friday 12-13 September 2019, in cooperation with the TTT Network, CHAM - FCSH/NOVA, at the National Museum of Theatre and Dance & National Museum of Costume, Lisbon, Portugal

The conference aims to generate a discussion around specific examples of how science and technology complement other approaches in the interdisciplinary field of early modern dress. Whether looking at innovative conservation treatments, cutting edge technological reconstructions, the digitisation of various sources or optical image recognition, science and technology have helped us to understand and value historical garments and textiles.
