Arte y produccion textilInternational conference “Arte y producción textil en el Mediterráneo Medieval”

Madrid, Museo del Traje. CIPE, 25-27 September 2018

Deadline: 15 March 2018

This conference aims to analyse medieval textile production from a cross-sectoral approach, focusing on the Mediterranean as an area of confluences that gave rise to varied manufactures with common links. This meeting, which will be attended by international specialists on textile research, proposes to re-examine assumptions on the production, functionality and circulation of these luxury objects. The collecting of these works, with regard to their archaeological and artistic value, as well as textile conservation, will also be under consideration.

According to these interests, the aspects to be discussed will include the following topics:

– Materiality and characterisation of medieval textiles
– Aesthetics and ornamental patterns
– Production and trade
– Functions and uses
– Textile ensembles and textile collecting
– Conservation and musealisation

Researchers interested in submitting a paper on any of the topics listed above are invited to send their proposals in Spanish, English, French and Italian, including the following information:

– Title of the paper proposal.
– Name and surname of the author and email address.
– Abstract of about 500 words.
– Brief academic and research CV of about 300 words.

The proposals should be sent to the email address by 15 March 2018. Authors will be notified of the outcome by 16 April 2018. Selected papers may be submitted later for their publication in a collective volume.
