課程概述

Characterized as a social, economic, aesthetic, sexual and psychological formation, fashion stands as one of the major defining features of modernity. On the one hand, it offers a flexibility of self-representation in the rapid change of time by encoding a shifting ※now-ness§ with constant innovations. It enacts, on the other hand, a magical accession to the past by perpetuating a recycling of history. In the words of Walter Benjamin, ※fashion is a tiger*s leap into the past.§
This graduate seminar is an introduction to theories of fashion and modernity from the mid-nineteenth century to the early-twentieth century. Starting with a theoretical mapping of time, space and fashion, it will move through historically specific discourses on the fabrications of fashion, body, gender, sexuality, colonialism, nationality and the metropolis.
