Elizabeth Verklan!


Verklan’s project, Objects of Desire: Feminist Inquiry, Transnational Feminism, & Global Fashion, “promises to fundamentally change the way that we think about feminist knowledge production in relation to the fashion industry (from the making of clothes, to the modeling of clothes, to the transnational feminist critiques of the global assembly line, to our consumption of clothes). Building on, and extending, the rich body of transnational feminist scholarship about globalization and factory work, Verklan examines not only the feminized labor comprising every level of the fashion industry but, metacritically, she analyzes the feminist knowledge production about that very industry and asks difficult questions about that knowledge.”
