Studying Textiles: Ausgabe 2022 der St!chwort
We have chosen the topic of textile studies as the theme for the 2022 annual issue. With this, we not only want to make the range of textile study options and locations visible, but also contribute to a first step of networking. Our magazine is like a virtual showcase in front of which potential students and interested parties can gather to gain insight into the innovative and interesting educational situations and research projects in the textile field. Unfortunately, we were not able to include all textile sites in this issue, leaving potential for another edition. To all those who have contributed to our ability to publish such an exciting journal, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Fourth issue of the online publication “Stichwort”
The focus of the fourth issue of the annual publication "Stichwort" is on two master theses, exploring the theme of Textile Studies in primary school and the core curriculum, as well as inclusion in Textile teaching. "Stichwort" also reports on cooperation trips of Textile Studies 2021 to Finland, the Netherlands and Belgium. This is about the project "Craft Education and Makerspaces", funded by INTENSinternational, a program to strengthen international cooperations. Erasmus collaborations with Universities in Rovaniemi and Helsinki have emerged from this project and the cooperation trips. In the summer of 2022, the first exchange students from the University of Osnabrück will travel to Finland as part of the Erasmus program.
Third issue of the online publication “Stichwort”
The third issue of the online journal “Stichwort” focuses on cooperation, projects and teaching at the Department of Textile Studies. The overview is followed by a contribution on the seminar “A Textile Archive as a Data Pool of Cultural History” by Professor Dr. Bärbel Schmidt and participating students. The authors explain Jules David Prown’s “Mind in Matter” method for analyzing textiles. Under the heading “Die Brille – Eine Objektgeschichte vom Lesestein zu Google Glass” (Spectacles – A history of objects from the reading stone to Google Glass), students explore topics related to the development of spectacles. The seminar was led by Lena Küppers. Lucia Schwalenberg reports about a collaborative project undertaken with Stiftung Mensch. In her seminar on “Heritage of Patterns – Development of a Collection for the Historic Beiderwand Weaving Workshop run by Stiftung Mensch in Meldorf”, the students developed geometric, timeless designs inspired by historical Beiderwand weaving. Under the heading “Textilkisten – Ein Bericht aus der Praxisphase GHR 300” (Textile boxes – A report from the GHR 300 practical stage), Alexandra Wilker sheds light on the changed requirements for teacher training students’ teaching practice in Coronavirus conditions.
Second issue of the online publication “Stichwort”
The second issue of the online publication “Stichwort”, published by the Department of Textile Studies, contains two students’ final theses. The first topic is about a project design on sustainable fashion – “Fairo Moda – Leihen statt kaufen” (Fairo Moda – Borrow not buy); the second is entitled “Basadi Women – Ein textiles Projekt in Südafrika” (Basadi Women – A textile project in South Africa).
The issue also includes a summary of the process of creating the academic scarf at the Department of Textile Studies in cooperation with the President’s Cabinet of Osnabrück University.
First issue of the online publication “Stichwort”
