Calling all fashion PR students and behind-the-scenes academics! Fashion, Style, Appearance, Consumption & Design is seeking paper proposals for the annual PCA/ACA conference in San Antonio, April 20-23, 2011 for the National Conference. If you have something to present and love geeking out with fellow fashion academics, this is the place - I had a great time back in 2009 in New Orleans presenting on Fashion PR.
Fashion, Style, Appearance, Consumption & Design is concerned with all areas and aspects of style, fashion, clothing, design, and related trends, as well as appearances and consumption using and/or including: historical sources, manufacturing, aesthetics, marketing, branding, merchandising, retailing, psychological/ sociological aspects of dress, body image, and cultural identities, in addition to any areas relating to purchasing, shopping, and the methods consumers construct identity.
Papers from all methods and disciplines are welcome! Innovative and new research, scholarship and creative works in the areas of fashion, design, the body and consumerism are encouraged!
Please email a short 50-word bio with contact information and an abstract of no more than 250 words of your proposal paper by December 15, 2010 to Joseph H. Hancock, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org
