The fourth biennial symposium, The Global Quilt: Cultural Contexts, was held April 2-4, 2009. This symposium explored the full breadth of contexts in which the quiltmaker's art is expressed and transmitted among and across cultures, including the ways in which quilts communicate cultural values, reflect cross-cultural transmission of style or technique, serve as a medium for social connection or reflect and express environmental, artistic, scientific and technological influences of the society in which they were made. Keynote Speakers included Jacqueline Atkins (Kate Fowler Merle-Smith Curator of Textiles at the Allentown Art Museum, Allentown, PA) and Jennifer Harris (Deputy Director of the Whitworth Art Gallery, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK)
