A conference to launch the LCF Transnational Fashion Research Hub.

Many fashion issues are highly political, and have been extensively explored. But the relationship between fashion and politics itself has not attracted much attention within academia.

This conference addresses the interaction between fashion and politics as presented in a variety of historical and current formats, from public and personal archives to printed fashion magazines, political dailies and illustrated magazines, feature films, social media and advertising.

Convener: Dr Djurdja Bartlett, LCF, UAL

Keynote speakers:

Professor Rhonda Garelick, New York University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln: 
Blow-Up: Fashion in the Age of Terrorism

Professor Angela McRobbie, Goldsmiths University of London, UK 
The Emerging political economy of fashion: Micro-enterprises in London, Berlin and Milan

Professor Barbara Vinken, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), Munich, Germany
Republicanism against Fashion as an Oriental Tyranny in the Heart of the West
