Focus on Irish Textiles Event
Saturday 24 November 2012

Following the success of the 2011 event, FITE 2012 will take place in University College Cork on Saturday 24 November 2012. FITE (an Irish word meaning “woven”) aims to bring together all who have an interest in historical textiles and to showcase the high quality of research undertaken in this area. The conference is attended by academics, historians, teachers, textile artists and craftspeople.

Proposals on any aspect of textiles worn or produced in Ireland up to 1700, and from all disciplines, are welcome in order to encourage as wide a discussion as possible. Subjects may include, but are not limited to:
- individual extant artefacts and garments,
- study of contemporary depictions: carvings, drawings, descriptions, etc,
- reproducing garments,
- textile manufacture in Ireland.

Presentations including reproductions are particularly encouraged.

Proposals for 15 minute papers/presentations should be sent to or submitted via the website:

A proposal/abstract could include any or all of the following: the idea of your presentation; an outline of the content; the context of your research; the sources/methodology used; findings/conclusions drawn. Please aim for 100-150 words.

The closing date for proposals is Monday, 1 October 2012.
