"Fashion, Body and Culture"
International Conference
30-31 January 2021 - London/Online
organised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
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 5 December 2020 to: fashion@lcir.co.uk.
