CFP: The New Research in Dress History Conference

CFP: The New Research in Dress History Conference

The Association of Dress Historians (ADH) will hold its annual New Research in Dress History Conference at The Röhsska Museum of Design and Craft in Gothenburg, Sweden during Wednesday–Thursday, 19–20 August 2020.

For this conference, the ADH welcomes proposals to present research on any aspect of the history of dress, textiles, and accessories of all cultures and regions of the world, from before classical antiquity to the present day.

To submit a proposal to speak at the conference, simply email the following information to ADHCFP@gmail.com as a .doc or .docx attachment (not a .pdf) by the deadline of 11:59pm GMT, Sunday, 1 September 2019: include your name, email address, descriptive paper title, 200–word (maximum) abstract (without footnotes), 120–word (maximum) biography (written in essay format), and one .jpg image (with reference) that represents your paper. If selected to present at the conference, this submission information will appear in the published conference programme.

During the two–day conference, 19–20 August 2020, there will be two concurrent panels in two separate rooms at The Röhsska Museum: one room will feature 10–minute presentations while the other room will feature 20–minute presentations. When submitting a proposal to speak at the conference, specify which presentation length you prefer (10 minutes or 20 minutes).

Potential conference speakers are not required to hold an ADH membership at the time of proposal submission; however, all conference speakers must hold a current ADH membership at the time of the conference during which they present. ADH memberships are only £10 per year and help support the ADH charity.
