This talk will examine visual and material cultures of textile recycling and their contributions to histories of science, technology, and medicine. Shell argues second-hand clothing is a vital medium–simultaneously visual and material, embodied and inanimate. Sources include literary and historical publications from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Most vital, however, are the visual and material sources: from military uniforms to mattress labels, from medical illustrations to political cartoons, to some of the best-known photographic documents in American history, here interpreted anew.
