New For Now

The origin of fashion magazines. Authors: Georgette Koning en Els Verhaak. 204 pages full-colour, paperback
Fashion changes constantly, but the desire to be ‘in fashion’ is eternal. For centuries people have eagerly followed the latest fashion trends. But how did one keep up in an age without internet, fashion blogs, Pinterest and glossy fashion magazines? New for Now explores how trends were spread before Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar appeared on the shelves. From the costume book in the 16th century by way of individual, hand-coloured fashion plates to the first fashion magazine to roll off the presses in 1785: Cabinet des Modes. There was no stopping after this and one fashion magazine appeared hard on the heels of the other, reaching an absolute high point in the Gazette du Bon Ton in 1912, full of magnificent art deco illustrations.

Plus que parfaits... Corps augmentés en scène [exposition]


Plus que parfaits...

Corps augmentés en scène

Exposition d'été de l'Opéra National de Bordeaux
du 9 juillet au 6 septembre 2015 au Grand-Théâtre
Organisée par l'Opéra National de Bordeaux dans le Grand-Théâtre, l'exposition «Plus que parfaits... Corps augmentés en scène» a été imaginée par les scénographes-architectes Philippe Casaban et Eric Charbeau* - en prenant appui sur tous les artifices qui - mis en œuvre par les ateliers de couture, perruque, déco-costumes, etc... - transforment la silhouette de l'artiste pour qu'il incarne un personnage et entre dans sa peau.

Framing the Face: New Perspectives on Facial Hair [call for papers]

One-day workshop, 28 November 2015 - Friend’s Meeting House, Euston Road, London

Over the past five centuries, facial hair has been central to debates about masculinity. Over time, changing views of masculinity, self-fashioning, the body, gender, sexuality and culture have all strongly influenced men’s decisions to wear, or not wear, facial hair. For British Tudor men, beards were a symbol of sexual maturity and prowess. Throughout the early modern period, debates also raged about the place of facial hair within a humoural medical framework. The eighteenth century, by contrast, saw beards as unrefined and uncouth; clean-shaven faces reflected enlightened values of neatness and elegance, and razors were linked to new technologies. Victorians conceived of facial hair in terms of the natural primacy of men, and new models of hirsute manliness. All manner of other factors from religion to celebrity culture have intervened to shape decisions about facial hair and shaving.


And yet, despite a recent growth in interest in the subject, we still know little about the significance, context and meanings of beards and moustaches through time, or of its relationship to important factors such as medicine and medical practice, technology and shifting models of masculinity. We therefore welcome papers related to, but by no means limited to the following questions:
  • To what extent were beards a symbol of masculinity and what key attributes of masculinity did they symbolise?
  • To what extent did the profession of the barber influence beard styles and the management of facial hair?
  • To what extent were beard trends led by the elite and by metropolitan fashion?
  • How far did provincial trends influence metropolitan trends through migration?
  • What impact did changing shaving technologies have on beard fashions/trends?
  • How were beards understood within the medical frameworks of different eras?
  • How have women responded to facial hair in different eras?
  • How has the display of facial hair by women been viewed as both a medical and cultural phenomena?
