Inside the Ivory Tower Lunch N Learn Series

October 31, 2018

October 31st: 12:00 noon – Lisa Binkley, Department of Canadian Studies

The Quilt Detective: Uncovering women’s histories from the textiles they made

Her work explores the often overlooked histories of women’s domestic life through close examination of the quilts they made. While some of her research relies on quilts found in museum collections across Canada, the United States, and part of Europe, she is interested in the histories of the makers when their quilts are no longer in existence, having been discarded because they are well worn and thread bare. Dr. Binkley’s talk will consider the significance of the textiles used in making quilts, the methods of making and the importance of considering the place and time in which they were made, all clues in recouping the histories of their makers.
