Clothing

In this module we will consider clothing and the personal significance of the way we dress as well as its external communicative power. Participants speak about personal style and cultural norms, how their manner of dressing has been affected by moving to Canada, and encounters with assumptions based on appearance. These reflections on dress and clothing bring together diverse perspectives that can inform a richer understanding of the way people choose to dress.
