History of Western Costume in the 20th Century

Drama 3961 - Spring 2020

History of Western Costume in the 20th Century is a continuation of the themes explored in Drama 396, (History of Western Costume from Ancient Greece Through the 19th Century). Ideally, students will have already taken 396 before enrolling in this class. This is a fast-moving, lecture-style class examining objects of human apparel from 1900 through the present, and analyzing the causes of fashion evolution throughout the 20th century. Students will explore the influence and aesthetics of major designers, and will observe and discuss the ways in which contemporary interpretations of the past are modified to comply with contemporary modes and expectations. Assessment is through exams and evaluation of a presentation to the class.
