Dr. Hazel Clark, Research Chair of Fashion, Parsons the New School for Design
This workshop continues conversations begun in Spring 2011 at the annual conference of the International Studies Association in Montreal, instigated by Dr Andreas Behnke, under the title of ‘Being Fab in Dangerous World: Gendered Bodies and the International Fashion World’. Contributors to that event will present their research at The New School as a way of addressing further the wider political contexts and agendas under which fashion impacts and interacts with social, material and corporeal functions in the context of geopolitics and biopolitics in the 21c. The workshop, which is open to those with varied and diverse interests in fashion, and politics, will also serve as a means of planning for a larger conference to be held at Parsons/The New School in spring 2013.
