Signs and Symbols
Dress at the Intersection between Image and Realia
Ed. by de Günther, Sabine / Zitzlsperger, Philipp
Research at the interface between Visual Studies and Material Culture Studies
Contribution to dress-related art history, to realia knowledge, and gender studies
Aims and Scope
This book contains contributions which focus on the question of the relationship between dress and image. The contributions show that the dress depicted in images goes beyond documenting a past status quo, and instead constructs realities and reveals symbolic potential. The articles also focus on realia used in images and work on the interface between image, script, and object sources. They expand the iconographic methods of "material culture".
