Short presentation

My research focuses on consumption and clothing practices in Tallinn, Estonia. Through sources such as inventories, wills and court records I explore what people did with their clothes and how clothes fostered social relations. As the vast majority of people did not have access to new garments, I argue that the term "consumption" is much broader than has hitherto been considered and goes beyond the acquisition of new goods.
