Fashion Theology

What is fashion? By what logic does it operate? And how does it shape our lives? Moreover, how does Christianity relate to fashion? This seminar is for anyone who has suspected there is more behind fashion than meets the eye. The first graduate seminar of its kind, participants will serve as fellow pioneers in the emerging field of fashion theology—that is, the fascinating ways theology intersects with fashion’s social, aesthetic, linguistic, performative, narrative, ethical, etc., elements. In doing so, participants not only gain essential tools for thinking theologically about fashion, but indeed, about any number of cultural practices that compose our everyday lives.
