The Adrian G. Marcuse Library at LIM College invites participation in the eighth annual Fashion: Now & Then Conference, a three-day conference in which participants will discuss the past, present, and future uses of fashion information as it relates to culture. Participants will be drawn from libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, collectors, museums, and the fashion industry to represent a full range of expertise. The theme for this year’s conference is “Fashion and Culture.” We look forward to receiving proposals for 15-minute presentations or hour-long panels that will examine both the current and evolving relationship between fashion and culture. Fifteen-minute presentations can be presented by an individual or a pair and will be grouped into sessions by the conference organizer. Panel presentations should include 2-4 speakers addressing a common topic and will be scheduled as a session. Those submitting a panel presentation proposal must have secured a commitment from all participants. Proposal topics can include one or more of these subjects in relation to fashion or style: archives, libraries, special collections, museums, ephemera, fashion history, fashion studies, fashion forecasting, fashion analytics, magazines, music, media, data visualization, marketing, material culture, merchandising, photography, preservation, product development, rare books, retail, social media, street style, textiles, and trend reporting. The event will take place Thursday October 18 - Saturday October 20, 2018 at LIM College in the Maxwell Hall building at 216 East 45th Street, New York, NY. Presenters are expected to register for the conference at a discounted presenter rate by Friday, August 31, 2018 to confirm your participation.
