2010 Textile Society of America Symposium
Textiles and Settlement: From Plains Space to Cyber Space
October 6-9, 2010
Keynote speaker for the symposium will be Sheila Kennedy, an architect, whose Portable Light project creates new ways to provide renewable power in solar textiles that can be adapted to meet the needs of people in different cultures and global regions. The Portable Light uses a thin-film photovoltaic textile and LEDs to harvest electrical energy and provide a completely self-contained source of renewable power and light.
The 2010 Symposium will be housed at the recently remodeled Cornhusker Marriott Hotel in downtown Lincoln. www.textilesociety.org
