Dress & Textiles Lead: Dr Anita Quye
Anita is the lecturer for conservation science at the Centre for Textile Conservation and Technical Art History where her research and teaching involves a uniquely fascinating union of science and history for interpreting and preserving historical textiles. Prior to this she was an analytical scientist at National Museums Scotland (NMS) for over twenty years after graduating with chemistry and forensic toxicology degrees, spending her last five years there on secondment to the core team that delivered the recently revamped National Museum of Scotland. Her research specialisms are applications of chromatographic and spectroscopic methods for characterising historical dyes and plastics, and she has collaborated extensively with historians, conservators, scientists and ethnographers in museums, galleries and universities worldwide and engaged in many varied professional and public dissemination events. She is currently leading a knowledge exchange project ‘ReINVENT’ and is a board member of ‘Creative Enlightenment’, a UoG-led creative industries career development programme.
