BIAS Journal of Dress Practice Issue 3: Fashion + Surveillance
In a time of Net Neutrality, WikiLeaks and reality television, surveillance has become part of our daily lives on an unprecedented level. Issue three is dedicated to broadly exploring the connections between fashion and surveillance in this unique present, as well as the past and future. The following questions are possible starting points and not meant to limit interpretation of the theme:

  • How does a culture of looks and looking affect our daily dress practices?
  • How is technology being used in fashion to deter surveillance?
  • How is fashion used to discipline the body?
  • What are the connections between surveillance and fashion spectacle?

    Written submissions must be 1,200 words or less and photography and other images sent at 300-600 dpi. Please send submissions by January 12th, 2015 via e-mail to DressPracticeCollective@newschool.edu
