Description

The symposium's goal is to gather leading scholars in the fields of Fashion Studies and/or Film Studies who share an undeniable and dedicated interest in researching the intersections between fashion and film.

The growing significance of Fashion Studies as a scholarly field is reflected in the establishment of multi-level programs in several universities around the globe. The interdisciplinary approach taken by these programs encourages perspectives and approaches from a wide variety of disciplines to inform research in Fashion Studies and this symposium aims at spotlighting one of the key perspectives, looking at the intersections between the fashion and film industries that together offer a vast potential for research.

The main intention is to bring together students, junior and senior scholars sharing similar interdisciplinary interests in order to bridge knowledge and networks. The event will provide a forum for participants to engage in scholarly discussions regarding the past, present and future of research in these combined areas, as well as the opportunity to exchange critical views regarding teaching, researching, publishing, and studying fashion as film and media scholars.
