- Course Description
In this course we will study dress and identity, drawing on readings from history, art, sociology, anthropology, and business/economics, while also using important artifacts and campus collections. Assignments help students learn to more deeply understand any topic by using, relating, and connecting widely varied areas of study. We will consider the predictive qualities of studying and interpreting fashion change, analyzing how dress and identity communication are affected by historical, social, and cultural contexts.
