Finding a Fashionable Voice

Presenter: Kevin McCluskey

Time: May 11, 11:15-12:30

Location: B122

This presentation identifies strategies used to help first year students find their voices when working on final projects for the first year seminar Finding Fashion. Students developed final projects answering one of Lillethun’s fundamental questions of fashion, but most importantly did so in a way that was not only intellectually challenging to them, but in a manner in which they could start to develop their individual voice as a life long learner, paying particular attention to how that voice communicates in the technology heavy 21st century. Not surprisingly most of the students wanted to have a voice that resided in the electronic world. The work of the students formed the foundation for an online, undergraduate journal in fashion theory called: Finding Fashion.
