Archiving Fashion Conference: Mapping Fashion Collections
November 11 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Archiving Fashion Conference: Mapping Fashion Collections will gather scholars, researchers, archivists, librarians, faculty, students, and professionals for a one-day event to discuss the present and future of fashion and textiles, and related material, in archives. A dedicated open-source website indexing global fashion archives that uses mapping technologies will be made available after the conference.
The keynote event will be the launch of FIT’s Fashion Calendar Research Database, part of the digital humanities project “The Ruth Finley Collection: Digitizing 70 Years of the Fashion Calendar,” which was funded by a Hidden Collections grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) and made possible with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
