Experience the liberal arts in action with “From the Faculty Lounge"—a series of interdisciplinary conversations with Barnard faculty who share intersecting interests. This installment of the series, "Dandies and Romantics," features a discussion between Monica L. Miller, associate professor of English and Africana studies, and Caroline Weber, associate professor of French, moderated by Provost Linda Bell.
Both professors have written extensively about the political and cultural impact of fashion throughout history, most notably in Miller's Slaves to Fashion: Black Dandyism and the Styling of Black Diasporic Identity and Weber's Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution. Their discussion reflects the depth, insight, and orginality of their writings and research.
