Special Issue Call for Papers 

‘Dressing through Pandemics’

Guest Editor: Dr Elizabeth Kealy-Morris, Manchester Fashion Institute, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.

On 11 March 2020, Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Sixteen years earlier, in February 2003, the SARS-CoV-1 (SARS) virus was identified during an outbreak in China and declared a pandemic soon after. From its origins in China in December 2019, COVID-19 quickly spread to the West where there was little collective memory nor public health experience containing a pandemic. To limit the transmission of the virus while vaccines were still unavailable, lockdowns were imposed around the world. Society was turned upside down in ways that often felt traumatic: new ways of living, communicating, learning, working and dressing were imposed overnight. Much has been written about important medical aspects of both pandemics, but little discourse has been shared regarding the ways in which fashion, style and popular culture were disrupted and changed through pandemic experiences. 

This Special Issue develops a multidisciplinary discourse which reflects and extends awareness and appreciation for the ways in which the pandemics altered and transformed our wardrobes, clothing consumption, ways of dressing and even the purpose of clothing. Research would be welcomed into the ways in which SARS, COVID-19 and other pandemics brought a new appreciation of clothing as safety and shield, and recognition that protective apparel manufacturing is an essential industry to public health initiatives with moral imperatives to act civically. Discussions into how lives lived online and in lockdown changed behaviour towards how fashion was consumed and worn would be valued. Additionally, the editor would appreciate research into the differing behaviours and belief systems regarding medical mask wearing in East Asian culture versus the West where mask wearing as a public health initiative was unique to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Clothing and dress as protection
  • Home sewing PPE and communities of practice
  • Online fashion consumption
  • Fashion brands’ remote experiential marketing strategies
  • Fashion houses dedicating machine time to PPE production
  • Developing a ‘waist up wardrobe’ for Zoom calls
  • The rise and rise of leisurewear during lockdowns
  • Cloth is not neutral (1): The medical mask as fashion accessory and protector
  • Cloth is not neutral (2): The politicization of the medical mask
  • The medical mask as a welcomed shield for people with facial disfigurements and dermatological issues
  • Cultural attitude to medical mask wearing: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) versus Community Protective Equipment (CPE)
  • Lessons of the Spanish Flu pandemic: the medical mask introduced into popular culture.
  • The troubled history of face coverings in the US – issues of racist aggression, profiling, discrimination, and the effects on personal health and public health initiatives
  • Designing masks we want to wear
  • Case studies of knowledge transfer initiatives between sectors to solve issues of design, supply, and distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kit 

Full papers should be sent to Elizabeth Kealy-Morris, Manchester Fashion Institute at

E.Kealy-Morris@mmu.ac.uk no later than 1 September 2024.  All manuscripts are double-blind peer reviewed.

Papers will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed as such. Questions regarding the journal should be sent to Joseph H. Hancock II at joseph.hancockii@gmail.com

 

'Products as Fashion' 

Guest Editor: June He, Drexel University, USA

As most of us know, fashion is not just clothing; in conversations about products, our usual starting point is their design and functionality. Following that, we take into account aspects like aesthetics and branding before purchasing them and adding them to our personal collection. In discussions about fashion, we tend to consider factors such as personal expression, current trends and societal implications. Throughout history, human civilization has witnessed a rich array of commodities serving as expressions of individualistic tastes, encompassing attire, footwear, accessories, and jewellery. In the contemporary era, with the rapid development of science and technology, intelligent wearable products such as digital watches, wristbands and eyewear have emerged. These not only enhance everyday practicality, but also incorporate personalized customization to cater to user preferences. 

With increasing frequency, people use products as a form of fashion to display their social position and personal values. As human needs become more individualized and technologies like artificial intelligence and 3D printing continue to advance, it's important to explore how to bring together product and fashion design to create novel and innovative solutions moving forward, and integrate the technologies used in both fields. This Special Issue of Fashion, Style & Popular Culture invites writers to explore the evolution of products as fashion in the history of human civilization, within the context of various cultures, ethnicities and geographical locations, as well as consumer identities and future trends. 

Potential topics regarding Products as Fashion include:

  • History
  • Speculative design
  • Wearable products and fashion
  • Sustainability
  • Consumer fashion in product design
  • Materials and manufacturing methods
  • Technology
  • Traditional craftsmanship
  • Global trend
  • Customization
  • Culture and identity
  • Product semantics
  • Ethnicity and race 

Manuscripts should be approximately 5000 words and prepared using the Intellect House Style, which may be accessed at:

https://www.intellectbooks.com/asset/1255/house-style-guide-5th-ed-2021.pdf 

Deadline for submissions: 1 December 2024

Manuscripts will not be considered unless they follow Intellect guidelines.

Manuscripts are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed as they arrive. All manuscripts are double-blind peer reviewed for acceptance into the journal. 

Please send manuscripts to June He, Drexel University at: jh3943@drexel.edu
