>
>A two-day colloquium organized by the McCord Museum of Canadian
>History in collaboration with the Costume Society of America,
>Northeastern Region
>in conjunction with the McCord Museum exhibition Reveal or Conceal?
>
>Fashion is inextricably linked to the bodies that wear it. Bodies give
>shape and meaning to clothing, while dress makes bodies social and
>fashionable (or unfashionable). How do we address the body in
>researching and interpreting the history of dress and fashion? How do we
>address its absence in studying the material culture of clothing?
>In the light of the growing scholarly interest in addressing the body in
>many academic disciplines, this colloquium aims to foster a dialogue
>among those in the academic setting who study the body as it relates to
>dress and fashion, and dress as an embodied practice, with those who
>approach it from the museum, material culture, living history, and
>design perspectives.
>Themes:
>
>Abstracts for papers are sought on the following themes, in historic or
>contemporary, Western or non-Western perspectives. Research
>incorporating or intersecting with material culture is encouraged.
>
>Uncovering modesty: Issues in the historical and contemporary
>perceptions of acceptable body covering, regulating dress and modesty,
>the interplay between modesty and eroticism in dress.
>Shifting standards: Key changes in constructions of physical comfort in
>dress, notions of public and private in fashion and the body, and
>gendering and the dressed body.
>
>Fashionable immodesty: The power of the partially dressed body,
>marketing the body, readdressing theories such as the ěshifting
>erogenous zoneî
>
>Wearing the body: methods of shaping the body from corsetry to fitness,
>embellishment and modifications of the exposed body, issues surrounding
>appropriate public presentation of the body.
>
>Putting bodies on display: aspects of museum or living history
>presentation of dressed bodies, such as the creation of mannequins and
