¡Clothing the Pacific¢ - a new research project
This ESRC-funded project, a joint initiative of University College London/British Museum/Goldsmiths College, focuses on the impact of introduced cloth in the Pacific. The project aims to study innovation and cultural transformation in response to introduced and imposed fabrics and dress. The project will involve fieldwork and archival and museum based research by Susanne Kuchler (project director), Lissant Bolton, Nicholas Thomas and Chloe Colchester, assisted by Susanna Kelly. The project will involve collaborations with Pacific Island organisations.

The project will hold a number of seminars and a major conference in 2002. We also hope to produce two small exhibitions, one to travel in the Pacific, and one for the Clothworker¢s Centre for World Textiles at the British Museum Study Centre. The project commenced in February 2001 and will conclude in January 2004. It is based at the British Museum and can be contacted at [log in to unmask]
