Hours & Credits
This module explores the ways in which British culture has reproduced, appropriated and performed the past through costume and clothing. The 'performance' of the title includes historical plays and plays about history, novel adaptations on film and television and the performance of the self through 'retro' fashion. The module takes the visual cultures of costume and fashion as the starting point for an analysis of the ideological and historically situated meanings we make of the past. It is taught through seminars, video screenings, fieldwork (one piece of which may take place outside London) and at least one theatre visit.
