Addressing textiles as a distinctive area of cultural practice and field of scholarly research, The Textile Reader introduces readers to the key issues essential to the exploration of textiles from both a critical and a creative perspective. The second edition brings together lectures, catalog essays, academic articles, fiction, and poetry, as well as several articles available in English translation for the first time, to capture the diversity of voices informing textile studies today.

Content is organized around the themes of touch, memory, structure, politics, and production, plus a new section exploring the role of community.

With 22 new contributors, this revised edition includes selected work from Maria Fusco, Ursula le Guin, Elaine Igoe, Faith Ringgold, and T'ai Smith. Extended introductions and annotated suggestions for further reading by the editor Jessica Hemmings make the second edition an invaluable resource to those interested in textiles, craft, and material culture.
