Title: Entering the Space of the wardrobe
Author: Skov, Lise
Abstract: This paper is written in preparation for the ‘Wardrobe Ethnographies’ conference to be held in Herning in June 2011. It aims to provide a research framework that goes beyond a catalogue of existing literature, and to provide discussion points for the conference papers. Scholars from several different disciplines have studied wardrobes and dress practices through a range of ethnographic and related qualitative and quantitative methods. The aim of the conference and ensuing book is to bring together a series of papers which combine a discussion of research approaches and methods with an ethnographic account of research findings. We hope to make a dual argument; firstly as obbjects of study wardrobes and dress practices can generate critical and innovative insights both at micro and macro levels; , and secondly, that what I tentatively term wardrobe ethnographies are a feasible and realistic research approach that is attracting scholars from different disciplines and with different research interests.
