The Institute of Scottish Historical Research (ISHR) at the University of St Andrews is hosting Dress and Décor: Domestic Textiles and Personal Adornment in Scotland up to 1700. This will be an interdisciplinary workshop on Friday 23 March and Saturday 24 March 2018, part of ISHR’s tenth anniversary celebrations. We seek to bring together a wide range of researchers from the burgeoning fields of Scottish history and dress and textile history in an interdisciplinary environment. The aim is to consider what, if anything, makes Scottish textiles distinctive in this period, and how Scottish consumption and display link to the wider material cultures of Europe.
