Critical Writing Award for Suffragette Paper
This year's critical writing award has been won by Susan Burnett for her paper Missing Patches: The rejection of quilting by the American Women’s suffrage movement.
Susan, from Belfast School of Art, says shehas 'always been interested in American textile history, and was inspired by the somewhat under-examined topic and misplaced connections between the textile craft of quilt making and women’s pursuit for the vote during late nineteenth century America.'
