You are invited to participate in this virtual conference by submitting a written abstract detailing scholarship and/or research study, an abstract of innovative teaching strategy, a design, or a proposal for a panel of speakers addressing some aspect of fashion and media (all panel members will have to register). All accepted abstract submissions will be published in the conference proceedings.

Submissions are being accepted immediately on a rolling basis for acceptance until April 1, 2021. We will be accepting a limited number of presentations so early submission is appreciated. Those with questions should email Dr. Joseph H. Hancock, II at

Virtual conference formats include poster sessions, design work, concurrent design, scholarship/research and teaching presentations (each speaker will have 15 minutes), and panel sessions that are submitted will need to have a minimum of 3 participants. 

The broad nature of fashion in relation to global culture allows for a wide variety of outcomes. For many academics what counts towards publication varies by country, institutions of learning, and where a particular participant is in their academic career. This conference will have all abstracts published with various other outlets for full paper publication for those who are interested. Final papers will have the possibility to be published in books or indexed journals. All abstract submissions for this conference will be double blind peer-reviewed prior to acceptance. Those who would like to pursue publication in a book or indexed journal will have the option but this is not required. The conference chair Dr. Joseph H. Hancock, II is working with Intellect Publishers to provide these opportunities for all who participate.
