Description

This course introduces the critical study of fashion in media and culture. It provides a framework for studying how fashion, as a multitrillion-dollar global industry and significant component of everyday life, helps structure social relations and functions as a site of identity construction. We develop theoretical, analytical, and methodological approaches to studying fashion and fashion media, drawing on interdisciplinary readings that place questions of identity and power in conversation with matters of representation, technology, the environment, labor, and the law.
