Fashion Research Network Presents:

THE FASHION & RACE READING GROUP

 

18:00-20:00 pm

Wednesday, 14th October 2015

Hosted by The Stuart Hall Library

INIVA's Special Collections Library at Rivington Place

 

The Fashion and Race Reading Group forms part of the Fashion Research Network’s Autumn Season 2015, in collaboration with special guest conveners Tanveer Ahmed (Open University) and Erica de Greef (University of Cape Town), and hosted by the Stuart Hall Library at INIVA. The session will begin with an introduction to INIVA’s collection from their librarian Nicholas Brown, which includes female Muslim fanzines, Caribbean artifacts related to hair and the archives from Veil, INIVA’s major exhibition from 2003.

 

The Fashion and Race Reading Group proposes to open up discussions on how notions of race are perpetuated, appropriated, misunderstood, marginalised, and often silenced, in an industry that is presented as global, diverse, expressive and inclusive. Contextualised via a selection of diverse texts, this session aims to promote an engaged dialogue and rich debate around questions of race and culture, appropriation, diversity and equality within a discourse of fashion studies.

 

To attend, please register via Eventbrite here Please note that spaces are limited for this session. Readings will sent to all registered attendees prior to the event.

Organiser

Fashion Research Network

Fashion Research Network (FRN) is a collaborative venture set up to promote and share the work of PhD and early career researchers in fashion and dress studies. The network was started by PhD Candidates from the Royal College of Art (Nathaniel Dafydd Beard and Ellen Sampson) and the Courtauld Institute of Art (Katerina Pantelides and Alexis Romano) in response to their own experience of navigating the networks already open to fashion researchers. Evolving from initial conversations on the merits and frustrations of research into fashion and dress, FRN provides a space for discussion about the nature of fashion and dress research.
