“Fashion and Design in Europe”

Jennifer Jones, Associate Professor of History, Rutgers University

This seminar will focus on a series of “moments” in European history when aesthetic styles of clothing became a flashpoint for cultural change. In order to understand the values at stake in the aesthetic choices European men and women made in different areas, this class will focus on the tension between older style and the adoption of newer styles, and the ways in which fashion reflects historical trends.
