ANT 305 - The Cultural Politics of Fashion

4 credits
Cross-listed as: AMS 305 . Everyone gets dressed: the creation of desire and cultivation of a consumer culture transcends geographic boundaries (from Dubai to Delhi, Paris to Tehran and NY to Tokyo). Fashion is personal, public and profitable:  considering fashion and taste as a dialectic shaped by local and global networks, our point of departure is on interaction and fusion between companies and consumers, brands and boutiques, luxury malls and museums, and fashioning identities in print and moving images.

Prerequisite: A 200-level course in Humanities or Social Studies Division.
Note: Plus-2 option available.
Instructor: Gibel Mevorach
