The Global Trade of Textiles and Clothing in the Early Modern Period: Exchange, Meaning and Materialities

  • Karolina Hutkova University of Warwick

Abstract

The two-day workshop at the University of Warwick brought together early career researchers studying various aspects of textile history – production, consumption, trade, fashion, and design – with the aim of drawing broader conclusions about the role of textiles and clothing in the development of societies, cultures and economies. The methodological and geographical breadth of the presented research holds a promise that in the near future we will be presented with a much more global picture of textile production, consumption and trade in the early modern period.
