ADH New Research in Dress History Conference 2021

The Association of Dress Historians will hold its annual New Research in Dress History Conference virtually via zoom, from 7 to 13 June 2021. Billed as ‘a weeklong โ€œfestivalโ€ of dress history!’ it features 122 speakers across seven days, beginning every day at 12:00 noon (London UK time). The programme for Monday 7th June may be of particular interest to KHF members, as Jane Malcolm-Davies’ paper ‘Slow Seeing and Fast Forensics: The Usefulness of Radiocarbon Dating Early Modern Materials, 1450โ€“1650’ addresses the use of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry in dating knitted fabrics, but there are many, many more papers introducing new scholarship on the dress of different cultures and periods. All of the conference presentations will be live and not recorded, so for some this may be an unique opportunity to see them. Tickets for this ambitious event start at ยฃ25. A 3-page conference schedule and a 146-page conference programme including all speakersโ€™ abstracts and biographies are available.
