27 Aug 2014
The first graduate on the College of Arts and Humanities Design History and Material Culture MA, who travelled from India to study in Brighton, has been appointed to lecture at the newly opened Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI) in Mumbai.
In her new role Pallavi Patke, who graduated in February this year, will lecture on Indian fashion and textiles business histories as well as being responsible for developing new course modules. Writing to her course lecturer Professor Lou Taylor Pallavi said “I must say that the MA course at the University of Brighton is now going to be of the utmost significance in my new role.”
Pallavi's MA dissertation dealt with the theme of the fashionable adaptation and commercial consumption of Indian embroidery reworked in India for the European market in the 1850-1910 period, in the context of related imperial political and cultural interests.
The brand new Indian School of Design and Innovation which describes itself as a 'progressive and entrepreneurial centre of excellence for design and innovation' is a joint initiative with the prestigious Parsons School of Design based in New York.
