This symposium will be all about hair in the past. We'll be discussing:
This interdisciplinary symposium will have no chronological or geographical boundaries. Moreover, though our aim is to illuminate the study of hair in the past, we would be very keen to hear from modern practitioners that feel they may have something to contribute to discussion; hairdressers, wigmakers, artists, sociologists and anthropologists are all most welcome. The key focus is head hair, though approaches that incorporate attitudes to facial and body hair are also welcome. Discussion of the face and body will take place at future symposia.
Details, dates, and arrangements are still to be confirmed. Please check back here for updates.
