Publication Date

9-2016

Abstract

This study pioneers the intersection of theology and the emerging discipline of fashion theory. Rejecting accounts that pit the two disciplines as disaffected, the study argues theology and fashion theory have reason to consider the other of consequence. This thesis is carried out in three movements. First (Chapter 1), by arguing fashion theory’s “multiple perspectives” approach and common intellectual real estate entails fashion theory takes theology seriously. Next (Chapters 2 & 3), by demonstrating the long legacy of both Catholic and Reformed accounts of (fashionable) dress. Third (Chapter 4), by modeling the promise of such interaction through a contemporary Reformed account of fashion, faith and the public sphere. The dissertation concludes by suggesting other promising horizons for further exchange between the two discplines.
