Jane Anne Malcolm-Davies

Lektor

I am an associate professor at the Centre for Textile Research with a particular interest in the history of knitting. My Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowship, which brought me to Copenhagen in 2015, has resulted in a new protocol for the scientific study of evidence for early knitting and a series of articles in the Archaeological Textile Review (no 60) which publish knitted items from the 16th and 17th century items. I have also designed and published an online database showcasing the 100+ knitted caps I studied - visit www.kemeresearch.com. I am also interested in the therapeutic effects of knitting which is central to my role in THREAD, an Innovation Fund Denmark sponsored "Grand Solution" which aims to provide opportunities for women refugees through an extensive network built around textile craft and culture.
