Dressing the Early Modern Network Conference, Lisbon ,12-13 September 2019

The Textiles, Trade & Taste – Portugal and the World is co-organizing this year’s Dressing the Early Modern Network Conference which will be held at the National Museum of Theatre and Dance & National Museum of Costume in Lisbon.

The selection committee welcomes abstracts related to 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.

Please, send abstracts via email to info@dressingtheearlymodern.com until April 15, 2019
