The talk will discuss two studies of contemporary Asian weaving cultures: one is a micro-level study of how weaving culture is transmitted and sustained, the other a macro-level study of technologies and techniques used across the region. The talk will compare the two and show how macro level patterns arise from micro-level processes, and discuss the wider implications, particularly for how technology evolves in traditional societies.
