My lecture Challenging Knitting aims to both be about knitting that speaks to the political challenges of the past decade, as well as present a challenge to knitting research. Examples of knitting that deal with topics such as immigration, racism and violence will be considered. But the lecture is also intended to be a challenge to those who research, create and speak about knitting to reconsider if sufficient breadth of perspectives are currently welcomed into contemporary discourse about knitting.
