PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF FASHION

history of fashion

Fashion, a social construct like language and culture, provides a window for studying customs, traditions, beliefs, shared values, symbolism, identity formation, social hierarchies, and for understanding the interplay between power and dominance in society. Karlyne Anspach (1967), in The Why of Fashion (The Iowa State University Press), explains that, “Through fashion people know where they stand in relation to others, who they are, and how they act” (p. 41).

Historically, fashion flourished at the courts of emperors, kings and queens, and among the aristocratic elite of inherited lineage or positions. In the last few centuries, due to the demand for high fashion clothing by the wealthy and powerful in society, new industries were created to produce fashion goods. This is evident in France at the turn of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth centuries with the establishment of Haute Couture Fashion Houses such as those founded by Charles Frederick Worth, Paul Poiret, Madeleine Vionnet, Jacques Doucet, Callot Sisters, Jeanne Paquin, and Jeanne Lanvin, to name a few. High fashion houses still continue to influence clothing styles and trends. However, new designs for the production of mass fashion may sometimes originate from other sources of society such as movies, celebrities and entertainers, peoples of other cultures, and subculture groups (i.e. the Bohemians in the 1950s, the “hippie” in the 1960s, the punk look in the 1970s).

In the summer of 2011, I began to research and write a series of articles on topics dealing with the HISTORY OF FASHION. Below you will find a list of the articles published to date on the Origin of Haute Couture and the History of Furs in Fashion. These articles can be viewed in the Fashion Collections Website. The link for this website is shown at the end of the list of articles.

OUR FUTURE OUR PAST

The Alberta Heritage Digitalized Projects. This collection makes accessible books on local and Alberta histories and provides a Bibliographical Index of the Prairie Provinces to 1953.  Using the browsing feature I found, for example, a book on the history of Morinville by Alice Trottier, Faith and tenacity: a history of Morinville

Francophone Teacher Shortages In Alberta

Below is a summary of the published 2002 article written by Yvette Mahé.  A PDF version of the article has been posted below for your convience.  Please observe the copyright notice, thank you.

French teacher shortages and cultural continuity in Alberta districts, 1892-1940Mahé, Yvette T.M. (2002) French teacher shortages and cultural continuity in Alberta districts, 1892-1940.  Historical Studies in Education/Revue d’histoire de l’éducation, 14 (2), 219-246.

Cultural continuity in French-speaking communities in Western Canada depended on qualified bilingual or French-speaking teachers who were willing to resist schooling that conformed to Anglo-Canadian goals.  However, as this paper will show, such nationalistic teachers were scarce due to assimilationist language laws, teacher training institutions, teacher certification policies, bilingual schooling and administrators’ practices, all of which had an impact on the creation and maintenance of bilingual teacher shortages before 1940.
