Sourcing the Archive: Textiles and Material Culture

  • Constance Howard Gallery, Deptford Town Hall Goldsmiths University of London London, SE14 6AF UK (map)

Part of the CHASE Material Witness training programme

Based at the Goldsmiths Textile Collection & Constance Howard Gallery, this workshop will explore how cloth, textiles and clothing can function as intensely intimate research sources for investigating the histories and experiences of those — the vast majority — who left no written records of their lives. The workshop will be led by Dr. Vivienne Richmond, Prof. Janis Jefferies, Prof. Emma Tarlo, and Dr. Christine Checkinska.
