This is a mixed lecture and seminar-style survey course which will trace the development of dress through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, showing its evolution from the period when the fashion aesthetic was determined by the Courts, to the rise of Victorian dress reform movements and the era of mass-media advertising. Our emphasis will be on using primary sources to gain a solid understanding of the social and cultural importance of forms of historical dress alongside the visual and practical components. This class is open to students in all undergraduate programs, and is also part of the Costume Studies program.
