Dear Colleagues,


The Textile Museum Journal invites and encourages submissions for its 49th volume (2022) devoted to new research on MATHEMATICS AND TEXTILES. The volume, guest edited by Dr. Jeffrey C. Splitstoser, Assistant Research Professor of Anthropology at the George Washington University, will be interdisciplinary. We encourage submissions examining any aspect of the relation between mathematics and textiles from all historic (and pre-historic) periods and geographic regions, as well as topics exploring mathematics in fabric structures, textile iconography, weaving practices, constructing and wearing clothing, and other topics.


The Textile Museum Journal, a peer-reviewed annual journal published by the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, appears in digital and print versions in color, which allows the incorporation of other media, such as video and sound. We encourage authors to consider incorporating those formats into their articles. Full-length articles for the journal typically range from 5,000 to 10,000 words, including endnotes, figure captions, and bibliography. We also accept submissions for research notes and book reviews, which range in length from 2,000 to 3,000 words.


Article proposals (250–300 words), a few samples of the visual material, and a brief author biography (100 words) for the “Mathematics and Textiles” volume are due April 6, 2021, with full articles (5,000 to 10,000 words) or research notes (2,000 to 3,000 words) due on August 31, 2021, with final acceptance subject to double-blind peer review.
