Textiles from Burma presents the richness of these traditions, illustrated with examples from the James Henry Green Collection at Brighton Museum and from other collections around the world. In essays and case studies by textile scholars, collectors and anthropologists, this book places these traditions within the contexts that have produced and used them, from the nineteenth century to the present. The book discusses themes relating to the history, production, meaning, collection and continuing impact of textiles from Burma. It investigates aspects of collecting and documentation in colonial and modern times, examining the histories and identities that are made and re-made as textiles are collected and written about. The Editors Elizabeth Dell is Keeper of Non-Western Art and Head of Anthropology of the Green Centre for Non-Western Art at the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. Sandra Dudley is Research Officer, Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford
