Textile Terminologies from the Orient to the Mediterranean and Europe 1000 BC–AD 1000

Textile Terminologies from the Orient to the Mediterranean and Europe 1000 BC–AD 1000, official Satellite Event to the Euroscience Open Forum, Copenhagen, June 18–22, 2014

Textile terminologies represent a fundamental sector of technical knowledge of the ancient and modern societies. This international conference, which will gather international scholars from universities, research institutes, and museums, will investigate the whole gamut of lexicological topics and methodological approaches about textiles attested in the languages of the Near East, the Mediterranean and Europe from 1000 BC to 1000 AD. Accordingly, terms for fibres, tools, techniques, garments, professions, metaphorical uses of textiles as well as ongoing projects of classification of textile terminologies will be discussed in this conference.
