What Is It About Textiles?

The textiles industry and its industrial legacy is central to the Industrial Revolution and capitalist dynamics expressed through cloth.  We invite textile researchers to write a history of the industrial legacy of the textiles industry from the eighteenth century to today.  Please contact us if this is something you’re interested in participating in.

There is an article here on the aftermath of the Rana Plaza building collapse (April 2013) and a book on the history of child labour in the British textiles industry here.
