Sui Yee Wong (Faculty) is presenting a paper at the 84th Anglo-American Conference of Historians, organized by the Institute of Histories in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London this coming July. Her paper is part of a panel called Fashioning Orientalism: Authenticity, Hybridity and Ethnicity which will consider fashion as a mechanism for producing specific kinds of identities and social interactions. It examines the adoption and creation of fashion as social practices that are productive of social and cultural meanings and effects. Situating such practices within socio-cultural, political, and (post-)colonial contexts, the papers in this panel discuss Chinese fashion in the 20th and 21st Century. From the perspective of Anglo-American Chinese diaspora, the papers in this panel address issues of orientalism, authenticity, hybridity by which Chinese identities are shaped. The three historical-grounded and culturally specific case studies in each paper highlight the relationship between fashion and orientalism, China and transnational exchange, in the production and consumption of fashion.
