This Deep Dig course unearths the rich and varied history of cloth and clothing, from the first twisted string to the modern fashion industry. What materials have cultures across the world used to make textiles? How and why were they created?
View stunning and distinctive textiles from Asia, the Near East, Africa, and the Andes as we explore how fabric, weaving, and fashion have shaped agriculture, empire, colonialism, and contemporary globalism. Join Dr. Anne Tiballi for this four-part online course offering a dynamic, in-depth learning experience with up-close investigations of artifacts from the Museum’s collections.
Dr. Anne Tiballi is the Andrew W. Mellon Director of Academic Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
