About me: My name is Eva I Andersson and I am a historian working at the Department of Historical Studies at Gothenburg University in Sweden. I eared my PhD in 2006 on a dissertation medieval dress in Sweden and Norway. Since then I have mainly studied Early Modern dress, gender, and consumption. My professional web page can be found here: https://historiskastudier.gu.se/english/about/staff/?languageId=100001&disableRedirect=true&returnUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fhistoriskastudier.gu.se%2Fominstitutionen%2Fpersonal%2F%3FuserId%3Dxandee&userId=xandee
I have also made historical clothing, mainly medieval, since 1993, and this experience lies behind my interest in the practices of re-creating medieval dress. This is my blog about my costumes: http://evashistoricalcostumes.blogspot.se/
The point of the survey is not to judge, either from a point of period correctness or based on any moral criteria, but to study practices among those who make and wear medieval clothing. I will not judge you either for making all your garb from polyester and glue, nor for wanting to (metaphorically) burn those who do. It is anonymous, and the information you provide about yourself will only used for statistics and not published in connection with any individual comments or answers.
