East Asian Textiles Launch
We will celebrate the publication of this digital curation project, East Asian Textiles. This project presents eighty-four textiles from the May Weber Ethnographic Study Collection at Loyola University Chicago. Collected in the mid-to-late twentieth century by Dr. May Weber, these textiles are sourced from a range of ethnic minority groups in China and adjacent countries.
Project coordinator, Xiaolin Sun, an MA student in Digital Humanities, will share his experience designing the project, cataloguing and digitizing textiles, conducting fieldwork in Guizhou, China, and developing the website. Dr. Catherine Nichols, Director of the May Weber Collection, will open the collection storage areas to guests.
