I have become the Social Media Editor at Fashion, Style & Popular Culture. You can expect to see more posts on both the Facebook page and a new Twitter handle for the journal (@FSPC_journal). I’m excited about this new position.
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.
My article, “‘The Leaning Tower of Pizzazz’: Ted Tinling, Couturier for the Women’s Professional Tennis Revolution.”, has been published in Fashion, Style & Popular Culture — volume 3, issue 3 (the October 2016 issue), p. 295-312. This article has been available electronically since July, 2016.
Photographs from the article, including photographs of a few Tinling-created dresses, can be viewed on the Fashion, Style & Popular Culture‘s Facebook page.
At some point late in 2015, my article, “Judith Butler Redux — The Heterosexual Matrix and the Out Lesbian Athlete: Amélie Mauresmo, Gender Performance, and Women’s Professional Tennis,” became the #1 most-read article for the Journal of the Philosophy of Sport. I am so excited! And I am proud of this little article!
My book chapter, “The Original 9, Women’s Lob Feminism, and the Social Movement That Launched Women’s Professional Tennis, 1968-1973,” will be published in The Routledge Handbook of Tennis: History, Culture and Politics, edited by Stephen Wagg, Carole Osborne, and Rob Lake. The book is scheduled to be published in mid-2017.
