The Knitting in Early Modern Europe (KEME) project was funded in part by an individual post-doctoral Marie Skłodowska Curie Research Fellowship from August 2015 to July 2017 (grant agreement 656748) awarded by the European Commission. KEME continues with the support of The Tudor Tailor and the Agnes Geijer Textile Research Foundation, Stockholm, Sweden.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships are awarded to enhance the creative potential of experienced researchers, diversify their technical or scientific expertise, and acquire new interdisciplinary skills through advanced training in another EU country. Dr Jane Malcolm-Davies received a MSC fellowship to work at the Centre for Textile Research, Copenhagen from August 2015 to July 2017.
Initial research into medieval and early modern gloves was funded by a Janet Arnold Award, administered by The Society of Antiquaries of London, which is an educational charity founded in 1707 to promote understanding of the human past.
The Janet Arnold Awards are intended to further in-depth study of the history of dress and the materials from which it is made.
