Europe through Textiles

EuroWeb Europe through Textiles: Network for an integrated and interdisciplinary Humanities (COST Action CA 19131) aims at formulating a new vision of European history based on textiles: their massive production, trade, symbolic meanings, consumption, and reuse.


A Pan-European Network

EuroWeb fosters a pan-European network of scholars and stakeholders from academia, museums, conservation, cultural and creative industries. Scholars from several disciplines of the Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences join forces to bridge current cultural, political, and geographical gaps and facilitate interdisciplinary research leading to inspirational material for experts in the allied and applied disciplines of fashion, art and design. The scholarly vision is to re-write European history based on its massive production, trade, consumption and reuse of textiles and dress.


A Platform for Collaboration

EuroWeb enables collaborations between researchers, engineers, scholars and other stakeholders and business by providing a platform for them to collaborate, co-create projects and training schools, and foster trust and shared ideas. Deliverables include collaborative publications, research workshops, theoretical reflection and advancement, digital infrastructure, the EuroWeb Digital Atlas of European Textile Heritage, films and podcasts, and intense mentoring, training, and career development for Early Career Investigators.
