Dressing Soviet: Fashion in Film of the 1920s and 30s.by Dr Emma Widdis

Language: In English

Emma Widdis teaches in the Department of Slavonic Studies in the
University of Cambridge is a Fellow of Trinity College. She has published
several books on Russian cinema, and is co-editor, with Simon Franklin, of
'National Identity in Russian Culture'. This talk is part of her current
research, which looks at the role of textile (in the home, and in clothes)
in the Soviet period. She will discuss the part played by popular film in
constructing images of how to 'become Soviet', and how clothing could act
as a sign of belonging – or not belonging – to the collective. Tickets:
£7.00, conc. £5.0
