Emma Dick is Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture, Fashion at Middlesex University and Director of Projects & Training for SPINNA Circle, a non-profit organisation working to empower women in fashion and textiles globally. Her research practice aims to bring together the disciplines of textiles, business, and development and is often focused geographically in Asia (Bhutan, Turkey, Central and South-East Asia). She is interested in how issues of the postcolonial collide with ideas of the postmodern to foreground issues of ethics and appropriation in cross-border trade and the global business of fashion.
