The New Research in Dress History Conference will be held on 18-19 August 2021 at The Röhsska Museum of Design and Craft in Gothenburg, Sweden.


(This conference was originally scheduled for 2020, but we have had to move the date to 2021, due to the coronavirus situation.)


Both 10-minute and 20-minute presentations are welcomed for submission on any aspect of the history of dress, textiles, and accessories of all cultures and regions of the world, from before classical antiquity to the present day.


To submit a proposal to present at the conference, simply email the following information by the deadline, 11:59pm GMT, 1 September 2020, to chairman@dresshistorians.org as a .doc or .docx attachment (not a .pdf) exactly as you want it to potentially appear (if your proposal is accepted) in the conference programme: your name, email address, affiliation, descriptive paper title, 200-word (maximum) abstract (without footnotes), 120-word (maximum) biography (written in essay format in the third person), one jpg image that represents your paper (and which can be published in the conference programme), a complete reference for the image.


Please indicate if you have a preference to present a 10-minute paper or a 20-minute paper.


Potential conference speakers are not required to hold an ADH membership at the time of proposal submission; however, all conference speakers must hold a current ADH membership at the time of the conference during which they present. ADH memberships are £10 per year and help support our charity and scholarship in dress history.
