This lecture course provides students with a broad framework to understand fashion as culture and industry, intrinsically linked with processes of globalization. Lectures are presented by faculty from within and beyond the university to bridge diverse fields in the theory and practice of fashion. Key-issues that will be addressed include the development of fashion as system, the linkage between fashion, modernity and capitalism, the process of industrialization and post-industrialization, intensifying relations to fashion through media culture and technology, the transnational dimensions of fashion, the environmental impact of the textile and apparel industries, and the rethinking of fashion towards more sustainable and ethical practices. The lecture course is taken by students in the first year of the MA Fashion Studies and MFA Fashion Design and Society program. Pathway: Fashion Studies.
