FASD-145 Contextualizing Fashion I

3 Credits

This course is an introduction to ways of examining clothing and fashion in context: how we read images and representations of clothing and how they manipulate the meaning of the garment, the ways in which this visual language is used to produce fashion, and how and why context is important in this process as key lenses through which we explore material culture. These concepts will guide us as we embark on a participatory research project and as a point of departure for class discussions, related readings and field trips.
