Dressed Bodies: A Symposium
Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences
17th July 2013
Today, to mark the end of the three-year research project If the Shoe Fits: Footwear, Identity and Transition (funded by the ESRC), we are hosting an interdisciplinary symposium in conjunction with the Centre for Gender Research. The symposium is designed to investigate the dressed body in social and cultural contexts with a concern to deepen understandings of identity as an embodied process. We are interested in the dressed body in its broadest sense, from shoes, bags, gloves, scarves, hats and jewellery, to hair, piercings, tattoos and more.
