Literature and Fashion studies Chiara Battisti
The methodological approach of "Literature and fashion studies" analyses fashion’s mythic dimension and suggests that fashion is a language in itself. The methodological tools offered by fashion studies will be applied to the analysis of different novels in order to explore the impact and meaning of fashion in past and contemporary culture, and to investigate how fashion’s mythologies are constructed and disseminated through fictional texts. It will also examine how fashion, as a form of fiction, can be said to constitute a “power technology”: fashion can consort with hegemonic norms as a regulating force that can incite conformity, but sometimes resistance as well.
