Reflecting Forward: 40 Years of the CSA
The Costume Society of America’s 40th Annual Symposium
Baltimore, Maryland May 28-31, 2014

This year’s symposium celebrates the Costume Society of America’s fortieth anniversary and their enduring influence of the field of fashion studies. The CSA invites submissions of original research which may include:

  • Influential figures in the study of fashion and textiles—including those from other disciplines
  • Milestone moments in the fields of costume, fashion, and textile histories—how they made an impact then, and how they affect the present and future
  • The enduring influence of our field onto other fields or disciplines of study — past, present, and future

Other aspects of dress and related disciplines are also welcome, including but not limited to: art, design, fashion, history, conservation, ethnography, archeology, social sciences, and marketing.

For a complete list of requirements and possible student travel awards see the full announcement on the Costume Society of America’s website.

Deadline: October 1, 2013
