Abstract:The material culture of slave life has been an increasingly important topic for the past few years. Many studies have been done on several aspects of slave life, but research on dress is relatively scarce considering how much we now know about things such as diet, housing, and religious practices. By combining written, visual, and material sources, this project brings dress studies into this recent trend and increases our knowledge of the relationships slaves had to the clothing they made and wore.
