Pasold news

The funding system for Pasold Research Fund, has been revised in January 2012.
The small, medium and large grants, formerly known as ‘Research Grants’ are now ‘Research Activity Grants’ (up to £750) or ‘Research Project Grants’ (from £750 to £2,500). The ‘Themed Workshop Grant’ no longer exists. Those who wish to apply for conference attendance and/or for funding to organise a conference/workshop should consider either the Research Activity or the Research Project grants. All other grants remain unaltered. See the Pasold Home Page website for further details.
Also, two notable conferences supported by the Pasold on clothing and textiles are taking place in 2012. The first at the University of Wolverhampton, 13 June 2012.
The University of Wolverhampton invites proposals for papers that explore the collection, display, conservation and all other uses of dress and textiles in heritage settings, including museums and historic houses, in Britain and beyond. Both theoretical and practice-based papers are welcome. Proposals for Dress, Textiles and Heritage by museum professionals, conservators, historians and all other interested scholars are equally welcome. Deadline for abstracts, 15 February 2012.
The second is on the theme ‘Innovation before the Modern: Cloth and Clothing in the Early Modern World’ will be held at the Nordiska Museet in Stockholm, Sweden on the 27-29 September, 2012. The deadline for paper proposals is equally Feb. 15.
