CFP: New Directions in Dress and Identity Research

Posted By Lauren G. Kilroy-Ewbank, Monday, May 15, 2017

We seek papers that examine the importance of dress, the body, and ethnicity in the formation of early modern identities across the globe. Topics could include the socio-cultural contexts of dress, the use of dress to communicate or encode ethnic identity (or identities), body modification, clothing and embodiment, fashion and its connection to cross-cultural trade and consumption, the relationship between dress, adornment, and gender, etc. New approaches to the study of the body, dress, and ethnicity are encouraged. We especially welcome papers that address these issues outside of the confines of Western Europe, including but not limited to the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

Please email proposals to both Elena FitzPatrick Sifford ( and Lauren Kilroy-Ewbank (lauren.kilroy@pepperdine.eduby Friday, 2 June 2017. Proposals should include:

  • paper title (15-word maximum)
  • abstract (150-word maximum)
  • keywords related to the presentation
  • curriculum vitae (300-word maximum)
  • AV requirements
