Yes, you’re still thinking about CTANZ in September (remember, abstracts are due 30 April) but the Costume Society of America has opened its call for papers for next year’s symposium in Seattle. The theme, which offers plenty of scope for New Zealand, is
The Pacific Rim and Beyond: Diffusion and Diversity in Dress.
The CSA is issuing all calls simultaneously, for research (traditional or visual experience), professional development sessions, and a design exhibit.
Details for submission found under the Call for Submissions tab at http://costumesocietyamerica.com/national-symposia/proceedings/.
Abstracts are due on September 1, 2018.
