WELCOME

Welcome to the 2014 ICOM Costume Committee Annual Meeting website!

The Annual Meeting will be hosted in Greece by the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation (PFF) and the Hellenic Costume Society. It forms part of a number of celebratory events marking the 40th anniversary of the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation, some of which will run parallel to the program.

The Meeting will start on the 7th September 2014 at the historic city of Nafplion and continue in Athens from the 10th of September onwards. On the 13th of September, a Student Saturday of lectures and workshops will bring together university students with members of the ICOM Costume Committee.

With the theme ‘Dress and Politics’, the aim is to highlight the multiplicity of forms that political understandings of dress may take, such as its relation to discipline, resistance, contested identities, discourses, political struggles, social distinction, legislation, museum representation, and others.

The Annual Meeting is organized with the kind support of:
