WIMPLES TO WELLINGTONS: HISTORY OF DRESS AND FASHION Dr Claire Walsh Wednesday 10 July 2019

Over the past thirty years, dress and fashion have become a rich area of academic research and interpretation - the emergence of organised fashion (medieval period), the use of fashion as a symbol of wealth and status (Renaissance) as symbol of political and religious allegiance (17th century) through to the introduction of new technologies (18th and 19th centuries). 

Dr Claire Walsh MA (V&A and RC),  PhD (European University Institute, Florence) has numerous publications and has lectured extensively at the V&A, the University of Warwick, the Open University, the Courtauld and Museum of London amongst others. She has also lectured in Europe, the USA (including Yale and the Huntington).
