Call for Papers - 2008 Symposium - Textile Society of America

Deadline: October 1, 2007
"Textiles as Cultural Expressions" is the theme for The Textile Society of America's (TSA) 11th Biennial Symposium. It convenes September 24 - 27, 2008 in Honolulu, Hawaii, providing " international forum for the exchange and dissemination of information about textiles worldwide, from artistic, cultural, economic, historic, political, social, and technical perspectives."
"TSA encourages presentations on textiles from
all parts of the globe and from textile-related
disciplines including (but not limited to):
anthropology, archaeology, art, art history,
conservation, cultural geography, design,
marketing, mathematics, economics, history,
indigenous traditions, linguistics, theatre, and
the physical and social sciences. Scholars, artists,
gallery and museum professionals, educators,
and lovers of textiles
are encouraged to submit
proposals. [emphasis added]
Textiles serve as a means of communicating
cultural values, as a medium for social cohesion,
and they link science and technology, architecture
and design, music and the performing arts. We are
particularly interested in explorations of textiles
as story-telling media, as mythological objects, as
“woven” archetypes, and as evidence of a life lived,
showing the interconnectedness of culture(s)
and between generation(s). "
