Professor Elisha Renne exhibits her textiles, texts, photographs and maps at Hatcher Graduate Library

The exhibit, “Textile Trade Ascendancies: Nigeria, UK, China,” examines changing global trends in textile trade, manufacturing, and consumption and their consequences for women and men living in the area of West Africa now known as Nigeria. It includes textiles, texts, photographs, and maps documenting changes in textile production and trade—from the local production of handwoven cotton textiles and later production of Nigerian manufactured textiles, to the import of British and Chinese wax and fancy print cloths. The exhibit will run from 10 May through 15 August 2015.
