GEHN Cotton Research Project: Padua

Padua Conference, 17-19 November 2005

The conference 'A Global History of Cotton Textiles' will be held at the University of Padua on 17-19 November 2005.  The programme will include 17 papers presented over three days.  The conference is also based on substantial contributions by commentators and other participants.  All papers will be pre-circulated a month before the conference.

The conference is associated with the GEHN proposed session 59  'Cotton Textiles as a Global Industry' that we are planning to hold at the XIV International Economic History congress in Helsinki on 21-25 August 2006.  We expect that a majority of the November conference participants will also attend the Helsinki Conference.
