Description
TSA’s Biennial Symposium will take place in Los Angeles, California on the campus of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). The theme of TSA’s 14th Biennial Symposium New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future will explore change and innovation in textiles in the past while looking at the state of the field of textiles, textile study, production and creativity, today and for the future. Where have we been and where are we going? What are the moments that encapsulate change? What are the shifts in direction for cultures, technology, creativity and knowledge? And how do these effect our understanding of textiles? TSA seeks presentation proposals from all textile-related disciplines and interdisciplinary areas, including but not limited to anthropology, archaeology, art, art history, conservation, cultural geography, design, economics, ethnic studies, history, linguistics, marketing, mathematics, political science, and theater, among others. Participation of international and U.S. scholars, researchers, artists, museum professionals, and others is welcome. Submission of abstracts is open to TSA members.
