ASRC 3550 - Modeling Race, Fashioning Beauty

(also AMST 3560 , FGSS 3540 ) (CA-AS)
Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

N. Rooks.

Using written and visual biographies as a starting point, this class follows African and African American women in the fashion industry to explore perceptions of beauty, race, gender and class. Contemporary television, global fashion and rigorous cultural studies will be intertwined as students discuss cultural standards of beauty, and ultimately, compose self-narratives defining their own relationship with fashion, appearance and self-image.
