Of particular interest to fashion, history, anthropology, and performing arts majors, this course is an exploration into the clothing worn by predominantly Western cultures from Ancient Greece through the 1890s. Lectures incorporating images of extant garments, sculpture, art, and photographs will inspire discussion regarding the influences on fashion evolution and the cyclical nature of fashion. Assessment is by exam, the first of which is on the fourth class meeting, so this is not a recommended course to "shop." Please note that this class is a prerequisite for History of Western Costume in the 20th Century, which is offered in spring semester.
