EDFD101 Culture, Dress and Identity 3 cr.


This course will examine the relationship between culture, dress and identity. We will look broadly across the world at how dress and adornment are extensions of one’s culture and identity and compare and contrast this to our own. We will explore the significance of dress through rituals, ceremonies and rites of passages as well as through a social and political lens. We will also examine the effects of globalization on dress, what this means in our contemporary world, and how this is leading us into the future.
