CHODA annual conference on "Dress & Gender," July 2-3 2004, Courtauld Institute of Art (University of London), England.
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.
The programme offers both theoretical studies and object-based presentations, with some papers that engage with both methodologies. Topics to be addressed include: the sartorial performance and display of masculinity and femininity; the place of gender in consumerism and the feminization of fashion; and the gendered framework of the clothing trades, including the participation of women as makers and suppliers. These papers draw on a wide variety of disciplinary approaches and address a range of issues, revealing a scope and breadth that speaks to the rich scholarly appeal of this important topic.
