- Postgraduate Programme of Media and communication studies
This course will present the close relationship of fashion and media industries. This course will examine fashion as a form of communication and culture. Through cultural and media studies theory, we will examine how fashion makes meaning, and how it has been valued through history, focusing on the relationship between fashion, visual representation, and power. The course will situate fashion both in terms of its production and consumption, addressing its role in relation to identity and body politics (in relation to gender, race, class), nationhood and the global economy, youth subcultures, celebrity and Hollywood culture, and subversive practices. We will study media representations of fashion, as well as cultural economy or industry of media-fashion complex.
