CFP: Theorizing Fashion in the 18 C. (9/15/06; ASECS, 3/22/07-3/25/07)
I'm seeking presenters for a panel that I'm organizing for the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies conference in Atlanta.
This panel sets out explore how writers theorized fashion in the eighteenth century. What kind of meanings did thinkers attribute to fashion? Scholars from a wide array of disciplines are invited to submit papers on the cultural significance of clothing. For instance, panelists might consider how a consideration of fashion became bound up to larger questions of history, aesthetics, or culture in the long eighteenth century. The deadline for submission of (250-500 word) abstracts is September 15, 2006. Electronic submissions (with the abstract included in the body of the e-mail) are preferred. Please send abstracts to:
