In a Reverse Fashion: A Critical Agenda for Sustainable Fashion
May 19-20, 2014
The Centre for Fashion Studies at Stockholm University, Sweden, and University IUAV of Venice, Italy, have organized a two-day workshop for International PhD students on the topics of fashion and sustainability. The workshop aims to explore and enlarge the concept of “sustainable fashion”.
PhD students will be asked to discuss issues like:
- the working conditions of fashion professionals
- new ways of conceiving fashion and new behaviours of consuming it
- sustainability issues in a digitally networked and open-access environment
- the emergence of specific, and historically situated forms of fashion activism
PhD Students are invited to submit an abstract of 500 words about their PhD research by 24 February 2014.
For questions regarding submissions, please contact Marco Pecorari.
For the full posting and submission requirements, please visit the Centre for Fashion Studies website.
