Refashioning the Renaissance Project Website Launches

13 October 2017

In December 2016, European Research Council  awarded Professor Paula Hohti a 2 million euro consolidator grant for her project Refashioning the Renaissance: Popular Groups and the Material and Cultural Significance of Clothing in Europe 1550-1650. The project is hosted by Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Currently, the project employs a Principal Investigator, PhD Candidate, Research Assistant and a Project Administrator. We have started the research work, and are very happy to launch the project website. 

The website is the place to find all the latest news and information on the project. Visit the About and Media pages to learn more about the project, our methods and aims, and to read what has been written about the project in media. Our team members are introduced on the People page, and you can read more about them on this blog in the future. We aim to engage actively with the wider research network, and organise and attend conferences, workshops and lectures. Follow the Events page to see our future events, and Presentations page to find out where our team members are giving presentations. Eventually, our findings will be published in Open Access on our Publications page.
