Conférence : « Everyday Dress and the Reconstruction of Early Modern Material Culture, 1550–1650 », Helsinki, 9-12 septembre 2021

Registration reopens in 2021 This international conference develops new perspectives in early modern dress and fashion history by asking two interrelated key questions: How did fashion beyond groups of wealthy elites develop in early modern Europe, and how can we gain access to the culture of lower social groups when so few garments survive, and sources about clothes are fragmentary?

Did ordinary Italians have a ‘Renaissance’? This book presents the first in-depth exploration of how artisans and small local traders experienced the material and cultural Renaissance.
