My international experiences have completely reshaped the way I think about the world. Much of my travel has been focused on this cultural study of textiles, both ancient artifacts and contemporary work. Textiles provide a particularly fertile arena for continuing research into world cultures. Using textiles as interdisciplinary teaching objects continually inspires me to plan future courses connecting history and culture.
