Anna's doctoral research is at the intersections of fashion, film and gender studies. Departing from a nomadic feminist perspective, the project explores fashion's (re)articulation of subjectivity through representations of garment basics within feminist fashion cultures. 'Garment basics' in this case is broadly defined. Yet, the sociosymbolic versatility provided by these articles of clothing serves as a fruitful point of entry for examining fashion's cultural interweaving of body, garment, and identity. Informed by feminist theories on embodiment and sexual difference, the project engages with clothes as discursive tools. In doing so, the research aims to develop new understandings of fashion and contemporary subjectivity. Moreover, the project recognizes fashion as a cultural phenomenon, calling into question issues revolving around representation, corporeality and interiority; sameness and difference; the (male, primitive) gaze and (female, ethnic) visibility; and subject-object relations.
