ZMJ CFP: Fashion and Childhood


Fashion and Childhood

guest editors Roberto Farnè and Marcella Terrusi

ZoneModa Journal invites you to present proposals for a monographic issue on Fashion and Childhood. The relationship between fashion and childhood can be explored from a wide range of different perspectives; from its representations of children’s body and clothing, in literature, in illustrations and other types of media to historical or sociological reflections concerning history of school, education and fashion.

The editors of this ZoneModa Journal issue invite you to contribute to this reflection, aiming at constructing an inter-disciplinary discourse on the relationship between fashion and childhood.

We welcome contributions relating to the following fields of research:

- Childhood imaginary and culture (history of children’s literature, illustration, movies and games)

- Pedagogy of the child’s body and children’s clothing in the history of education and illustrations (i.e. history of school, sport and toys)

- History of fashion design for children between experiences and key figures

- Sociological perspectives on the places, markets and initiatives devoted to fashion in childhood and how this relationship is perceived and retold by various parties.
