    Biography: Emma Dick is Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture, Fashion at
    Middlesex University and Director of Projects & Training for SPINNA
    Circle, a non-profit organisation working to empower women in fashion
    and textiles globally.  Her research practice aims to bring together the
    disciplines of textiles, business, and development and is often focused
    geographically in Asia (Bhutan, Turkey, Central and South-East Asia). 
    She is interested in how issues of the postcolonial collide with ideas
    of the postmodern to foreground issues of ethics and appropriation in
    cross-border trade and the global business of fashion.

    Everyone is welcome.
