Explorations in Arts and Humanities; Fashion and Clothes through the Ages
Restricted to first semester first year students in the College of Arts and Humanities. What do clothes tell us about individuals through history? This course will explore how sociological, political, economic, artistic, ethnic, geographic, technological and other factors affect costume through the ages, and how, at the same time, fashion and personal adornment emerge not only as practical necessities and/or signs of social rank and inequality, but also as manifestations of human individuality, character, personal taste and as a critically important form of communication which is unique to humans.
