Letter from the editors
Craik, Jennifer & Black, Prudence (2009) Letter from the editors. Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body & Culture, 13(4), pp. 405-408.
In recent years, the topic of fashion and dress has exploded on the international academic stage. Australia has not been immune from this trend and the study of fashion and dress has proliferated across the country in many disciplines and fields of study. This issue pays tribute to the growth of fashion theory in Australia by presenting a range of perspectives on fashion and dress from “down under. ”While the focus of contributors is on the distinctiveness of fashion cultures in Australia, broader issues about establishing identities of nationalism through dress underpin the articles. In what ways is fashion distinctively Australian—and conversely, “un-Australian”? Is the issue of national identity in fashion and dress still relevant in the global context?
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
