Einav Rabinovitch-Fox to Present at Fashion: Now & Then

The Battle of the Skirts - Women's Agency in Determining Dress Styles - The Late 1920s as a case study will be presented by Einav Rabinovitch-Fox, New York University on Friday, October 19, 2012 in one of the sessions at Fashion: Now and Then at LIM College.

Einav is a PhD student at the history department in New York University. Her dissertation, “This is What a Feminist Looks Like: The Construction of the New Woman Imagery through Fashion and the Political Culture of American Feminism 1890-1940,” examines the ways in which women employed dress styles in negotiating and constructing gendered political identities, as well as in advancing feminist agendas during the early decades of the twentieth century. Her project examines the intersections between feminism and fashion, claiming that the two are inherently connected, not opposing each other. She won the 2012-2013 Winterthur Library and Museum Research Fellowship and the 2012-2013 Schlesinger Library Dissertation Grant, as well as research grants from New York 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.
