Dress and Ethnicity by Joanne Bubolz Eicher

Book Description

From African-American women's headwraps to beauty pageants in Swaziland, this absorbing book explores ethnicity through the frequently noticed but less often analyzed human phenomenon of dress. The authors -- ethnographers, folklorists, and textile scholars -- present case studies from around the world to illustrate their different theoretical frameworks and assumptions. In considering how the body is modified and supplemented they discuss not only garments and accessories but also hairstyles and cosmetics.

Visible Self by Joanne Bubolz Eicher Visible Self, Paperback (October 2008)

Everywhere around the world, people make daily decisions about what to wear or how to dress. This title presents a systematic approach to analyzing these daily rituals that we all share - not simply the act of putting on clothing, but also cleansing the body and adorning it.

Beads and Beadmakers by Joanne Bubolz Eicher Beads and Beadmakers, Paperback (May 1998)

This work analyzes techniques and gendered aspects of the making of beads, as well as their role in trade and body adornment, in a wide range of societies where they have become a symbol of cultural survival and identity.

Dress and Gender by Joanne Bubolz Eicher Dress and Gender, Paperback (April 1993)

Dress is one of the most significant markers of gender identity, yet is only rarely explored in depth. This volume addresses the relationship between gender and dress, opening up aspects by covering a variety of ethnographic areas reaching from Asia, Europe and Africa to North and South America.
