The New Research in Dress History Conference

London, England

Please join The Association of Dress Historians twitter conversation @DressHistorians, and tweet about our 23–24 April 2021 New Research conference in London, England with hashtag #ADHNewResearch2021.


CHODA (our original association that has become The Association of Dress Historians) was founded in 1991. In 2021, we will commemorate our 30-year anniversary by going back to the roots of our association to celebrate New Research in Dress History. The Association of Dress Historians is proud to announce our Call For Papers for next year’s New Research in Dress History Conference.

 

Saturday, 1 August 2020 is the Call For Papers deadline for The New Research in Dress History Conference (which will be held on Friday and Saturday, 23–24 April 2021 at the historic Art Workers Guild, 6 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3AT).

 

To submit a proposal to present at the conference, simply email the following information by 11:59pm Saturday, 1 August 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), and a complete reference for the image.

 

Please indicate if you have a preference to present a 20–minute paper (in the room that seats 100 delegates) or a 10–minute paper (in the room that seats 40 delegates).

 

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.
