Costume Across the Curriculum &
Into the Community

Joint 2018 Regional Symposium, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern Regions
October 11-14, 2018
Hosted by
Fashion Archives & Museum
Shippensburg University, Shippensburg, PA

The symposium is being held in conjunction with the FA&M’s exhibit “The Fashions of Fiction from Pamela to Gatsby,” which has received generous support from the Coby Foundation. Stimulating peer-reviewed presentations will include studies of costume in literature and the arts, educational and creative connections between dress and other subject fields, innovative exhibitions, successful programs, events, and promotions.

Funding is available each year to support mini-meetings within the Region by providing monies required to publicize these events (up to $125 per meeting). Meetings can be designed around a local event such as a theatrical performance or museum exhibition and can be in partnership with an organization, an historic home, a museum, or a bordering CSA region. These smaller versions of the Region’s annual symposium are encouraged because they not only provide local CSA members with costume programming but also foster interest in costume topics among potential members.
