Chipstone-CDMC Undergraduate Research Fellowship Symposium

The 2nd annual Chipstone-CDMC Undergraduate Research Fellowship Symposium will feature presentations by the 2021 cohort of summer fellows. Their presentations will focus the 3 CDMC pillars: design thinking, material culture, and textiles.

Malkha | Madison

Online Launch: August 2021 – Ongoing. The Malkha | Madison project seeks to deepen our understanding of the value of artisan production in the contemporary post-industrial world. Indian artisan cotton textile production is a field that links the pre-industrial past to the post-industrial future. Through CDMC’s 3 pillars, we aim to convey the vibrancy of the field by sharing the vision, process, & material culture of Malkha, a South India-based textiles commons.
