Fashion History Crash Course in Paris

The Fashion History Crash Course in Paris, offered by the University of Alberta's Department of Human Ecology, takes place August 2 -10, 2020 at the Paris American Academy. Whether you are new to the study of fashion or are established in the field and are looking for a meaningful professional development opportunity, Dr. Anne Bissonnette will guide you through the history of western dress from ancient Mesopotamia through the 20th century.


Dr. Bissonnette will use artifacts to illustrate the day's topics during afternoon visits to world class museums (museum visits are optional and, with the exception of a formal guided visit to the Cognacq-Jay Museum, informal).


The Early Bird Fee of $2,000 CAD is available until February 28, 2020 and covers 8 nights of accommodation, 6 morning lectures and several other events and excursions.


More details on accommodation, the class schedule, and what you can expect to experience in Paris available here.
