Modernism, Fashion and Interwar Women Writers

A Genealogy of Queer Practices in the 19th Century

Vike Martina Plock

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Explores the various correspondences that existed among an emerging new fashion discourse, feminine identity formation and constructions of authorship in the modernist period.
  • Challenges critical notions about fashion as an emancipatory force in women's lives by showing how it was also used to uphold patriarchal values in the interwar period.
  • Uses unexplored archival resources to offer new readings of interwar female writers as important contributors to a cultural discourse that relegated women to the position of uncritical consumers of fashion.
