Joined the Editorial Board at Fashion, Style & Popular Culture

I have joined the Editorial Board at Fashion, Style & Popular Culture! I am very excited about this opportunity to be at the heart of discussions about fashion! I am especially looking forward to encouraging more authors to submit articles on cultural analyses of athletic sportswear, and expanding this area of scholarship.

Here is the description of the journal from the website:

Fashion, Style & Popular Culture is a peer-reviewed journal specifically dedicated to the area of fashion scholarship and its interfacings with popular culture. It was established to provide an interdisciplinary environment for fashion academics and practitioners to publish innovative scholarship in all aspects of fashion and popular culture relating to design, textiles, production, promotion, consumption and appearance-related products and services. Articles related to history, manufacturing, aesthetics, sourcing, marketing, branding, merchandising, retailing, technology, psychological/sociological aspects of dress, style, body image, and cultural identities, as well as purchasing, shopping, and the ways and means consumers construct identity as associated to Fashion, Style & Popular Culture are welcomed.

I presented my paper, “The Original 9, Women’s Lob Feminism, and the Social Movement That Launched Women’s Professional Tennis, 1968-1973,” which is part of my dissertation study, at the International Sociology of Sport Association’s World Congress held June 9-12 in Paris, France.  To help offset the cost of attending, I received Elaine Henson Memorial Fund travel funds from the Department of Kinesiology, and the Jacob K. Goldhaber Travel Award and the International Conference Student Support Award from the Graduate School, both at the University of Maryland.
