Event description:

Applying diverse methods from across subject disciplines the conference will explore fashion and style in wide-ranging contexts. It will examine connections between fashion, body and culture and will focus on dress, cosmetics, coiffure and body alterations (piercing, tattooing, circumcision, aesthetic surgery, etc). How does our dress or hair style create our identity and status? How is it concerned with sexual and body politics? Is the desire to be "in fashion" universal or unique to Western culture? These and other questions we set out to discuss at the conference. Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to: Fashion History Geographies of Fashion Psychology of Fashion Fashion Design and Technology Fashion and Media Fashion and Rituality Gendered Fashion Sustainable Fashion Fashion and Power Fashion and Body Politics Paper proposals up to 250 words and a brief biographical note should be sent by 20 October 2019 to: fashion@lcir.co.uk.
