33 Settlements. 33 Experiences. Joseph Rogers, through his uniquely dramatic style of writing, explains how settlements differ in character but are in many ways so strangely equal. By pinpointing various landmarks, establishments and individual traits that make a village, town or city what it is, he tries to create a snapshot definition and lasting memory for each place he visits. From Glasgow to Grimstone, Budapest to Beer, he attempts to grasp the very reason for exploring such places and brings forth conclusions that express his many opinions on the subject of travelling.
From its beginnings in the fifteenth century, intensified interest in fashion and the study of fashion over the last thirty years has led to a vast and varied literature on the subject. There is now barely a discipline in the humanities or social sciences that does not take a position on what fashion is, what it does and how it works.
This collection of essays surveys and contextualises the ways in which a wide range of disciplines, (including sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, fashion history, gender studies and cultural history), have used different theoretical approaches to explain, and sometimes to explain away, the astonishing variety, complexity and beauty of fashion. Themes covered include individual, social and gender identity, the erotic, consumption and communication.
Each extract is introduced, placed in its historical and theoretical context and its significance for fashion theory is explained.
By collecting together some of the most influential and important writers on fashion and exposing the ideas and theories behind what they say, this unique collection of extracts and essays brings to light the presuppositions involved in the things we think and say about fashion.
