Presented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Co-sponsored by the School of Art and Design History and Theory, Parsons School of Design; Asian American Feminist Collective; and the Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program in the NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis.
Edited by S. Heijin Lee (NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis), Christina H. Moon (Parsons School of Design), and Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu (NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis), Fashion and Beauty in the Time of Asia (NYU Press, 2019) considers the role of bodily aesthetics in the shaping of Asian modernities and the formation of the so-called “Asian Century.” Transnational and interdisciplinary in approach, the volume brings together the fields of ethnic, gender, area, fashion, and cultural studies, and maps the way that fashion and beauty practices travel through imaginations, aspirations, and geographies (from Guangzhou to Los Angeles, Saigon to Seoul, New York to Toronto).
The editors participate in a roundtable discussion with contributors Jessamyn Hatcher (NYU Liberal Studies), Minh-Ha T. Pham (Pratt Institute), and Denise Cruz (Columbia University).
