Episode 34 – Decolonizing Fashion Studies – Guest Lecture at the Royal Academy of Copenhagen

by Chic by Dr. Kat Sark


November 8, 2021

The 34th episode was recorded remotely during my presentation at the Royal Academy of Copenhagen, when I was invited to give a guest lecture on decolonizing fashion education for Else Skjold’s new MA program in sustainable fashion in October 2020. You will hear most of my presentation, but it ends a little abruptly with the question, “where do we go from here?” which I posed to the students during the discussion period, which is not included in this recording. Of course, this is an enduring question that I have been working on in my research, teaching, and publications. So, let’s consider this just the beginning of an on-going conversation of how to make fashion education more just, how to bridge decoloniality and sustainability, and how to reform the fashion industry.
