CALL FOR PAPERS
IN THE LOOP 3
The voices of knitting
A three day international conference
Dedicated to the memory of Richard Rutt
Discovery Centre, Winchester
5 – 7 September 2012
In response to the success of both In the Loop 1 & 2, and with reference to the continuing interest in knitting, this third interdisciplinary conference proposes an exploration of knitting through a range of voices covering a variety of themes. Papers that cross geographical or chronological boundaries in the following areas are of particular interest:
Knitting – discovery and exploration
Knitting – representation in film, literature, music, poetry and the internet
Knitting – wellbeing and therapy
Knitting – in sport
Knitting – voices from across the world
Knitting – adornment
We welcome new and recent research in the form of short abstracts comprising up to 300 words from practitioners, knitters, historians, conservators, theorists, educators, curators, technologists and the industry. Abstracts will be considered for formal 20 minute papers.
Deadline for abstracts: March 1, 2012
Notification of decision: April 1, 2012
All enquires and abstracts to the Conference Administrator: J.A.Horgan@soton.ac.uk
Please forward to any interested parties.
