Courtauld History of Dress Association Annual Conference on "Dress and Gender" 2-3 July 2004, Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London, England.
From the cod-piece to the corset, dress has been key to the construction of gender in specific historical contexts. This conference seeks to re-visit the relationship between dress and gender in history, a line of scholarly inquiry that benefits from increasingly sophisticated and nuanced research.
Papers are solicited that draw on a wide variety of approaches and address a range of issues. Topics may include: the sartorial performance and display of masculinity and femininity in visual sources; the place of gender in consumerism and the feminization of fashion; the gendered framework of the clothing trades, including the participation of women as makers and suppliers. The conference is open in terms of historical and geographical focus. Please send a one-page abstract and C.V. by December 19th, 2003.
