Research Spotlight
Emily Baker (Art)

Nylon 66

Nylon was first manufactured to replace silk and then played a huge role in World War II. Now it is frequently utilized in construction and manufacturing alongside hoists and cranes. The versatility of this “strong as steel” polymer brings industries together that previously rarely overlapped. My work focuses on the intersection of these two industries. This project is supported by the Hagley Museum and Library in Wilmington, Delaware, by funding an Exploratory Research Grant to spend a week with the extensive E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company Advertising Department records. Once there, I will examine DuPont’s contribution to the textile industry, specifically their role in women’s fashion during the rebirth of nylon’s image post-WWII. . . read more
