    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Media Studies, Stockholm University

    Författare :Lauren Downing Peters; Klas Nyberg; Caroline Evans; Hazel Clark; Andrea Kollnitz; Reina Lewis; [2018]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; American history; consumer culture; cultural history; design; discourse; dress history; fashion; fashion history; fashion magazines; fat; identity; Michel Foucault; modernism; modernity; plus-size; self-fashioning; technology; the body; women; modevetenskap; Fashion Studies;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation examines how fashion media discourses created the conditions through which the fat, female body was both known and constructed within the context of the early large-size garment industry in the United States, or what between the years 1915 and 1930 was known as “stoutwear.” Drawing on a wide array of media sources, including women’s and fashion magazines, trade journals, catalogs and style guides, and employing Michel Foucault’s archaeological method, the dissertation examines the productive nature of fashion discourse in the construction and constitution of the fleshy body, or how the discourses of stoutwear brought order to the disorderly, fat, female body.

  2. 2. Dress Matters Clothes and Social Order in Tallinn, 1600-1700

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Astrid Pajur; Margaret R. Hunt; Jonas Lindström; Janine Maegraith; [2020]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; dress history; material culture; seventeenth century; social order; Sweden; Tallinn; social hierarchy; early modern guilds; consumer revolution; fashion; clothing; Historia; History;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation explores the relationship of clothes and social order in early modern Europe. The period has often been characterised as inert and immobile, with especially middling and poorer people living in a sartorially drab world, but a number of historians have demonstrated that it was also a period of profound material change, with consumer demand, democratisation of fashion and global trade engendering cosmopolitan sensibilities earlier than thought.

    Författare :Marco Pecorari; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; fashion; ephemera; archive; epistemology; materiality; modevetenskap; Fashion Studies;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation investigates fashion ephemera as objects of knowledge. By focusing on a category of fashion ephemera (invitations, catalogues and press releases) created by contemporary ready-to-wear fashion designers, this study moves beyond the canonical idea that fashion exclusively endures in the form of garments or other wearable objects, while shedding light on an overlooked category of fashion objects.
