Annual Arnow Lecture Focuses on Collaborative Scholarship through Fashion Collection

May 7, 2012

Jill Carey, Joan Weiler Arnow '49 Professor and Associate Professor of Fashion, delivered the Annual Arnow Lecture at on May 2nd in the Yamawaki Art and Cultural Center Auditorium, highlighting many collaborative projects involving students, faculty and the Lasell Fashion Collection. The talk was followed by a reception and exhibit tour in the Donahue Center for Creative and Applied Arts.

Carey's talk, titled Practicing Collaborative Scholarship/Experiences and Possibilities, explored connections between war and fashion. Examples included several exhibits curated by students and faculty in the last year that demonstrated how the incorporation of military elements within dress expresses an association to dramatic environmental conditions which surround periods of conflict.

This research was the result of collaboration between faculty, students and professional organizations. At the conclusion of the talk a reception and an exhibit tour of female dress, which features the juxtaposition of British CC41 clothing with American fashions from the 1940s, was held at the Donahue Center for Creative and Applied Arts.

The Arnow professorship is a three-year endowed professorship sponsored by Joan Weiler Arnow '49 and Robert Arnow. Carey is the 6th Arnow professor.
