Lyons Learning Project – Nice Jewish Girls

January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A unique exploration of Jewish female identity through the lens of fashion, with Professor Carolyn Mair and poet and activist Leah Thorn. In conversation, Carolyn and Leah will discuss issues of fashion and clothing that have impacted them as Jewish women, including assimilation and upward mobility and the imperative to dress modestly. Leah will show a short film about her poetry and fashion project ‘Older Women Rock!’ and ‘Older Women Rock!’ poetry, clothing and jewellery will be on display. Carolyn will discuss how psychology enables us to understand fashion as an expression of identity and how fashion as communication is problematic.
