Fab in a Dangerous World: A Blog Looking at the Relationship Between Fashion and Politics

My colleague Andreas Behnke teaches at the University of Reading in the UK. His focus is international political theory, but recently has been looking at fashion issues as they relate to conflict, war, peace, and security.  His blog “Fab in a Dangerous World” demonstrates how issues of culture and conflict permeate all facets of life including what we wear.

His first blog post  – “On Wearing a Qipao to the Prom” – is about a recent event where a U.S. school student decided to dress for her prom Chinese style… and what happened.  It’s a great read.
