Caleb Sayan, founder of the previously mentioned online resource, Textile Hive, will be in L.A. (at UCLA, specifically) on Friday, September 12th to participate in the Textile Society of America Symposium. His focus, appropriately enough, will be digital knowledge bases and ways of connecting textile collections -- topics that mesh well with the themes of this fall conference: innovation and change, past and present.
A wide range of textile scholars are scheduled to make presentations during the five-day event, using cloth as a jumping off point while covering the globe from Africa to Asia to the Americas.
