Administrative history

The Department of Clothing and Textiles in the Faculty of Home Economics was concerned with clothing, textiles and housing, allowing specialization in textile and apparel merchandising, history, and conservation. The department aimed the program to permit students to apply knowledge gained from the basic disciplines of Chemistry, Physics, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, and Art and Design. Students could select courses from within the Faculty and from other Faculties in order to prepare themselves for a job in clothing and home furnishings fields. This included historical textile preservation. They offered programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The Department was the Secretariat for the Apparel Studies Association of Canada Inc. from 1973 to its dissolution in 1988.

Chairs: 1980-1988 Elizabeth Crown; 1988- Nancy Kerr.
