Corinne Thépaut-Cabasset is Research Associate at the Château de Versailles and currently Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the Centre for Textile Research/SAXO Institute at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). She is an early modern historian and art historian specializing in the history of decorative arts, fashion and dress, and global trade, with a particular emphasis on the interrelation between art, trade, and diplomacy. She has edited the series of fashion articles published in the Mercure Galant: L’Esprit des Modes au Grand Siècle (CTHS, Paris, 2010). Her publications reflect the various topics she carried out for her research on dress and textiles. They explore, from different perspectives, the ways in which archival sources interact with object based studies. Addressing research on dress and textiles, she aims to restore the threads of history, material culture, and visual culture. Her current research “Dressing the New World” looks at textiles and fashionable goods in the early modern Americas. Furthermore, it intends to understand in detail the trade mechanism of European commodities and fashionable goods in everyday life in a colonial system. Previously, she was appointed as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, for the three-year international research project (2010–2013) “Fashioning the Early Modern: Creativity and Innovation in Europe 1500–1800,” funded by Humanities in the Research Area (HERA), investigating the creativity and innovation that lay behind the creation and spread of fashionable goods in Early Modern Europe. She also contributed to the V&A Galleries “Europe 1600–1815.” At Bard Graduate Center, she will be working on her book manuscript “Dressing the New World: The Trade and the Culture of Clothing in the New Spanish Colonies 1600–1800.”
