Study Clothing, Textiles and the Human Environment

Students waiting for class

Note: No new enrolments will be accepted for this subject.

Overview

Human behaviour is inextricably linked to clothing and textiles: how we appear, how we respond to ambient environmental conditions, and how we perform physically/physiologically are modified by clothing and textiles. These papers together help explain why this is so, by linking human physiology with structural and performance properties of clothing and textiles.

The minor is relevant to those with an interest in sport and performance in sport, marketers of sporting goods, and educators.
