Amanda Hallay


Amanda Hallay, Assistant Clinical Professor at LIM College, is an author and cultural historian specializing in various aspects of 20th century popular culture and how each acts as a catalyst to another (as explored in her courses "Cultural Connections to Fashion", "Pop Century" and "Who Wore What When", created and taught exclusively at LIM College). The author of several books exploring 20th century pop culture, Professor Hallay’s book, The Popular History of Voodoo will be released by The History Press in 2013, and she will be presenting her research (and the challenges she met due to the lack of archiving of what many in the 20th century perceived as ‘lowbrow’) in her talk, "DO DO THAT VOODO! Sex, Sin, Snakes and ‘The Dusky Other’ in 20th Century Popular Culture."

Amanda is the former International Fashion Editor of Couture and Men Mode magazines, and was at one time European Trend Analyst for the Doneger Group, a fashion forecasting service.  She is a graduate of the American University of Paris and England’s Bath Spa University.

On Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th professionals from the fashion industry, libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, and museums will gather at LIM College for Fashion: Now & Then, a conference on the past, present, and future uses of fashion information that will consist of lectures and panel discussions.
