4. The Enslaved Body: Fashion and Language

In this episode we talk to dress historian, Joy Davis about the enslaved body. Joy explains “The enslaved body can be described as both an idea and a physical construct: a beaten, scarred, oppressed, or restricted person physically and/or mentally. This has manifested itself in primary source material such as the runaway slave ad and abolitionist literature such as "Uncle Tom's Cabin." The enslaved body is a part of the larger concept of the colonial body. And while it is very important to understand the ideal body of the historical fashion moment, the colonial and enslaved body go beyond the physical form.” In our discussion, we explore the enslaved body’s representation in fashion art, literature, and advertisements.Just a note, this episode was recorded on Superbowl Sunday, February 7, 2016.Visit the blog for images, episode bibliography and more fashion at www.unravelpodcast.tumblr.com.Instagram: @unravelpodcastTwitter: @unravelpodcastImage credit: Josiah Wedgewood, Anti-Slavery Medallion, 1787.

29. Roundtable: Appropriation, What is it Good For? With Regan Loggans

Welcome to the second episode in the Unravel Roundtable Series. In this episode Dana and Jasmine talk to academic activist Regan Loggans about the history of cultural appropriation in fashion. Together they define appropriation and go all the way back to ancient Greece and Rome to cover a range of appropriation cases in fashion into the present.Definitions:Appropriation:”Taking possession of something, or taking something over, without permission.” or the adoption or use of the elements of one culture by members of a different culture. Often confused with pastiche (which may be a eurocentric conflation) Definition found in “Understand Postmodernism” by Glenn WardAcculturation: The process of cultural change and psychological change that results following meeting between cultures. The effects of acculturation can be seen at multiple levels in both interacting cultures.Title: War by Edwin Starr https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpWmlRNfLckImage: Denise and Paul Poiret dressed for the “Thousand and Second Night” party, 24 June 1911.

33. Halloween Extravaganza, Costume in Film: The Witch, The Craft & Hocus Pocus

Happy Halloween! This is our annual Halloween Extravaganza episode, and this year, it is extravagant. Jasmine, Dana and Joy discuss the costuming and historical context for three of their favorite Witchy Halloween movies: The Witch (2015), The Craft (1996) and Hocus Pocus (1993)! While all the movies star witches, they are very different types of witches in very different time periods and their costumes reflect that. The discussions ended up being very in-depth, so here are the timestamps for each film: The Witch 7:45, The Craft: 56:00, Hocus Pocus 1:24:00.Fashion A-Z:Doublet: Period 14th century - 1670s. Worn in France in the 14th century but was not a part of general English wear until the 15th century.Think Henry VIII It was padded jacket worn next to a a shirt; close-fitting and waisted but not belted unless worn without an overgarment. It could be worn with or without detachable sleeves. Doublet skirts varied from none to very narrow coverun the hips. In the late 15th & 16th centuries the front was widely open, requiring a stomacher or a partlet a stiffened decorative front insert. In the 17th century doublets became looser and the skirts had varying tabs. The Dictionary of Fashion History By Valerie Cummings, C. W. Cunnington, P. E.
