Call for Papers: Textile History

Not sure when the due date is on this one:

2009 Textile History Forum
Call for Papers and Presentations
Association for Living History Farm, and Agricultural Museums

The textile history forum will meet Friday October 2, through Sunday October 4th, 2009, at Thistle Hill Weavers, Cherry Valley, New York. The forum is seeking presentations and papers on research relating to textiles in America from prehistory to the present.

This year the Textile History Forum will have a symposium style meeting using the mill at Thistle Hill Weavers, the collections at the New York State Historical Association, the Windfall Dutch Barn, and other local collections.

Presentations and papers on any original research are being solicited. This year we are especially interested in research relating to cotton. Any aspect of cotton including economic, social, production, and use of cotton is welcome. Papers will be distributed to participants as part of the forum.

We will not be publishing the papers for a larger audience but will post papers on our web site after the symposium if authors are interested. Writers and researchers will retain copyright and be able to publish their work in other journals.

The Forum is open to any one interested in textile history and is designed to promote an exchange of research and ideas. The meeting is informal with lectures, presentations, and workshops. The forum welcomes academics, antique dealers, collectors, and textile enthusiasts.
