The Ottoman Heritage in Austro-Hungarian Costume and Textiles
Start Date: 4/28/2018Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 4/28/2018End Time: 3:00 PM


This talk will illuminate influences on costume and textiles during the 150-year long Ottoman Turkish occupation of the greater Austro-Hungarian Empire (1541–1699). This area extended from the periphery of Vienna to present-day Romania. Despite constant warfare and turmoil, Ottoman occupation brought many cultural innovations to the region. Curator and scholar Joyce Corbett will examine traditional royal embroidery and the evolution of court dress in Hungary, votive carpets in Transylvanian churches, and other adaptations of Ottoman textile culture in Western Europe.

This program is a collaboration with the International Hajji Baba Society. Free, no reservations required.
