About Jessica Hemmings

textiles, contemporary craft, postcolonial literature

 

I joined HDK in January of 2017 as Professor of Crafts & Vice-Prefekt of Research. I am currently Vice-Prefekt of Research for HDK-Valand. I supervise five PhD candidates who are undertaking projects that explore jewellery, place making and dissolving heritage / collective work / digital and analogue image making in tapestry weaving / community weaving and identity / blacksmithing, tools and the body. 

 

My research interests focus on contemporary craft and understanding the contribution textiles make to contemporary society; representations of craft in postcolonial literature; how – and why – practitioners write.

 

I am on the editorial board of Textile: the Journal of Cloth & Culture (Taylor & Francis) and Craft Research (Intellect), external examiner on the MA Textiles at the Royal College of Art, London (2017-2020) and held an honorary Adjunct Professorship at UNSW, Sydney Australia (2016-2018). I have been invited external MA & PhD examiner in Australia, Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand & USA and currently act as external PhD advisor for research projects at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, London College of Fashion & University College Dublin.
