Textiles from the Indian Subcontinent (short course)

Location: United States Experience Type: External Opportunities

Welcome! This Short Course is designed for anyone curious about the rich story of one of the world’s most innovative producers of textiles – the Indian subcontinent. Its lessons include a series of engaging videos and illustrated texts that provide insights into processes of textile production, trace their historical trajectories and examine the place of textile traditions within broader visual cultures through other art forms such as paintings, drawings and photographs. We traverse a long stretch of time from the premodern period to the contemporary moment, adopting a thematic approach to an expansive history.
