Course description

"Clothing and textiles are a necessary part of our everyday lives.  They are a way to communicate meaning, belonging, and tradition.  Relating to the study of material culture, these textile items speak as the physical artifacts of the cultures that create them.  Beyond the study of the unique traditions in Sewanee, students will also explore current textile and clothing usage and industry, as well as the impact of textile waste, in the local community."
