A Taste for the Exotic: Cross-Cultural Influences in Early Modern Dress and Textiles

Thursday and Friday 27-28 September 2018, Abegg-Stiftung, Riggisberg, Switzerland

The conference aims to generate a discussion about the cross-cultural influences in dress and textiles by considering how these ideas were transferred, disseminated and exchanged as well as the ways in which these cultural interactions were used to form connections and foster relationships between different people and places.

PhD students and early career researchers are invited to speak about the topic with reference to their current or previous projects. The deadline for submissions is 15 April 2018.
