New Reflections on Fashioning Identities: Lifestyle, Emotions and Celebrity Culture



14 June 2019

University of Roehampton

London, UK.



A one-day symposium supported by the Centre for Research in Film and Audio-Visual Cultures (CRFAC),
in association with the Fashion, Costume and Visual Cultures Network (FCVC)



Symposium convened by Dr Theodora Thomadaki, University of Roehampton


Keynote Speakers
Dr Shaun Cole Associate Professor of Fashion at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.

Gok Wan Multi-award-winning UK presenter, fashion expert and on-screen consultant.


Gok Wan’s award winning series How To Look Good Naked (Channel 4, 2006-2010) vividly revolutionised the popular terrains of the makeover genre. It pushed the cultural boundaries of the traditional makeover format by facilitating an emotionally rich transformational experience where female participants reflectively engaged with hidden and often unexplored aspects of their inner subjective experiences. In retrospect the Gok Wan phenomenon can be seen to have played a key role in shaping what we understand as ‘therapeutic’ in popular British lifestyle media and makeover culture.


This symposium aims to bring together established, early career and emerging scholars and practitioners working in fashion, promotional culture, celebrity studies and lifestyle media to explore current debates on makeover, fashion and lifestyle practices that enable us to bridge the outer and inner word as means of (re)exploring, (re)discovering, and reflecting on the body, self, sexuality and identity.



Abstracts of up to 300 words along with a short biography should be submitted to Dr Theodora Thomadaki at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by February 15th, 2019. Notifications will be sent out end of February.



Topics may include, but are not limited to:


  *   Makeover culture and self-improvement
  *   Reality TV and ordinary celebrities
  *   Celebrity, fashion and branding
  *   TV, transformation and lifestyle culture
  *   Fashion, sexuality and gender performativity
  *   Ordinary clothes and fashion objects
  *   Social media, editing and consumption practices
  *   Clothes, skin and emotional expression
  *   [Post]feminism, beauty and the body
  *   Psychoanalysis and popular culture.


Kindest Regards
Theodora
