FASHION, STYLE & GLOBAL CULTURE IS A CONFERENCE DEDICATED TO THE AREA OF FASHION SCHOLARSHIP AND ITS INTERFACINGS WITH GLOBAL CULTURE.
Fashion is signified and utilized across the globe. The second annual Fashion, Style & Global Culture Conference will focus on how fashion is portrayed in all types of popular and global culture. This conference aims to push the envelope of scholarship to gain new understandings about the visual expression of fashion, lifestyles, global culture and textiles through all forms. From the historical to the contemporary - the latest innovations to historical analysis, the Fashion, Style & Global Culture Conference aims to be international in scope and represent a wide variety of disciplines, with a particular emphasis on perspectives and approaches from the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
The symposium has an inclusive definition of the term “fashion.” While fashion is often understood to center on apparel choices, fashion can be recognized as the current style or way of behaving in any field. Thus, proposals are welcome from divergent fields such as fine arts, digital media, television, film, merchandising, fashion design, business, architecture, anthropology, cultural studies, history, interior design, graphic design, psychology, sociology, and women’s studies among others to examine interconnections and intersections between fashion and global culture.
This conference provides the opportunity for academics, researchers, graduate, and undergraduate students to exchange research findings, innovative teaching strategies, and creative designs addressing the interrelationships between fashion, style and our global culture.
All Drexel faculty, professional staff, graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to attend and participate for free. RSVP or submit your abstract no later than April 1, 2019 to Dr. Joseph H. Hancock, II, The Pennoni Faculty Fellow, 2018-2019 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
