Week in Review – 10 July



My pick of the week is the forthcoming exhibition at Edinburgh Museum A Wise Man Knows His Craft: Henry Taylor Wyse and Holyrood Pottery, which explores the legacy of Henry Taylor Wyse – a prolific painter, potter and designer. He was a founder of the Scottish Guild of Handicraft, a reformer of art teaching in schools, and a friend and co-exhibitor of key figures in the art world such as John Munnoch and William Staite Murray.

Other CFPs, journal articles, MOOCs and research positions that caught my eye this week included:

The CFP for the William Morris and Victorian Radicalism conference.

The CFP for Reimagined Meanings: Photographs Repurposed conference.

The new special issue of TEXTILE: Cloth and Culture, on Emotional Textiles, edited by Sally Holloway and Alice Dolan.

Dr Matthew Green’s article in the Public Domain Review on ‘The Secret History of Holywell Street: Home to Victorian London’s Dirty Book Trade’.

The Stereoscopy: an Introduction to Victorian Stereo Photography MOOC from National Museums Scotland & The University of Edinburgh.

The recently advertised Postdoctoral Research Fellow position on the ‘Renaissance Skin’ project.

The CFP for the Gay, Lesbian & Queer Studies Area, Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association conference.
