Rags and Riches - Call for Papers

As requested in the call for papers, I am spreading the word about the conference "Rags and Riches". 
It is a one day interdisciplinary conference "Rags and Riches: dress and dress accessories in social context", to be held at the University of Reading on the 21st April 2012. This conference aims to bring together archaeologists, anthropologists, historians and others from related disciplines to discuss current issues of methodology, theory and interpretation of dress and dress accessories, from prehistory to the present day.

Details about the call for papers can be found at http://www.reading.ac.uk/archaeology/Events/arch-rags-and-riches-conference.aspx. The deadline for submissions is the 17th February 2012.
Announcements will be posted at the web address above, but we can also found on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/212400145506326/) and twitter (@riches_and_rags).

It does sound nice, but I won't be able to justify going to England for a one-day conference...but if any of you end up going, I'd love to hear about it!
