FASH 383 The Fabric of Cultures


This interdisciplinary, topic-based course examines the dress, adornment, beautification and body modification practices and customs of non-Western, marginalized and indigenous peoples. Through readings, assignments, discussions, museum trips, film screenings, fieldwork, site visits and archival research, students will be asked to think critically about the relationship between identity, race, gender, memory, community and citizenship, as well as how the residual effects of colonialism have shaped the Western fashion system. The course will culminate with a group exhibition or publication.
