> The international journal Apparence(s) will publish a special issue
> (Spring 2021) on the complex relationships between animals or animal
> by-products and fashion and dress. The special issue will examine the use
> of animal by-products (be it fur, feathers, cochineal or silk) alongside
> the inspiration animals have long provided to fashion (from the ‘mode
> giraffe’ in 1830 France to the shark-skin swimsuit of Michael Phelps). We
> want to study sartorial practices, their meanings and impact – whether
> cultural, economic or environmental. The volume aims to investigate the
> use of animal by-products in dress and fashion but also shed light on the
> trades and skills of people involved in the transformation of animal
> products for fashion – from feather workers to leather tanners, hat
> makers, furriers, or bone cutters…Their aesthetic, social and economic
> importance will be re-contextualised alongside the more general
> technological and environmental issues their trade raises.
>
> Animals have been a source of inspiration for fashion designers but also
> an economic engine for the wealth of nations whilst in some cultures they
> are a crucial spiritual point of reference (the Pacific feather cloaks
> being a case in point) and they provide source material and inspiration to
> contemporary R&D projects (from spider-DNA to goat’s milk-derived fibres).
> Dress – whether fashionable, everyday, technical or ritual – has long had
> complex, multi dimensional relationships to animals.
>
> Both as an interface between the body politic and the individual body and
> as defining features of human civilization, dress and bodily decoration
> are key sites in which the relationship between humans and animals are
> defined and constructed.
>
> Yet, despite a few isolated studies, very little scholarly attention has
> been paid to the relationship between animals and dress. Often narrow in
> terms of chronological, geographical or methodological scope, what exists
> has failed to grasp the more complex ramifications of the topic. At the
> crossroads of many disciplinary approaches, the « Animal fashion » special
> issue intends to explore these complex issues without restricting itself
> to a specific century, geographical space or cultural reality.
>
> In this volume we also to intend to address questions raised by the fairly
> recent emergence of animal studies to see what light they can shed on our
> topic. This approach, which often posits animal agency, challenges the
> traditional dichotomic opposition between human subjects and animals seen
> as passive objects – be it as source material for fashion or as objects of
> study.
>
> We are calling on historians, economists, archaeologists,
> archaeozoologists, anthropologists and animal studies specialists to send
> their proposals to
> afennetaux@yahoo.com and gabriele.mentges@tu-dortmund.de
