'Ad-Dressing Margins': Historically Underrepresented Fashion & Style
Start Date: 10/27/2023Start Time: 8:00 AM
End Date: 10/28/2023End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
An Association of Dress Historians (ADH)/Drexel University International Hybrid Conference with Workshops
27–28 October 2023
For this conference, we seek to center work focusing on historically marginalised communities, fashion, style, and dress in historic and modern contexts. Our intention is to show the myriad ways marginalised communities engage with the fashion system such as in everyday contexts and/or means of resistance. We are seeking scholarship that centers marginalised identities and those who have often been marked as “other” or outsiders.
