Human-made textiles are documented to be at least 30,000 years old and speculated to be several million years old. This course begins with a brief overview of the physical properties of fibers and fabrics but focuses on how textiles have shaped human development and functioned in various social, economic, and cultural contexts from pre-history to today. Textiles have been and remain important manifestations of status, belief and religious systems; agents of technological innovation and globalization; foundations for capitalism, industrialization, and modern economic development; political agents for transformation; and treasuries of both mundane and sublime aesthetic expression.
