This book introduces topics about identity, dress, and the body. Through the content, readers explore how individuals and communities use dress as a way to communicate (i.e. “negotiate” in fashion studies) their various identities. There is heightened attention to social justice, power, privilege, and oppression. That is, the content focuses on the experiences of historically marginalized communities and the ways they navigate dress and dressing their bodies in different contexts. In the first part of the book, readers are introduced to concepts and theories related to fashion, clothing, dress, and/or accessories. In the second part, readers examine the role that fashion, clothing, dress, and/or accessories play in identity development for individuals in marginalized communities in the United States.

Subject(s): Industrial chemistry and chemical engineering

Publisher: Iowa State University Digital Press

The purpose of this handbook is to introduce students to chemical engineering separations in a way that most closely aligns with what most entry-level chemical engineers will do in the workplace.  Most newly hired chemical engineers will be responsible for monitoring and troubleshooting existing processes and proposing modifications to improve process performance. For this reason, we have written the handbook to emphasize how to optimize process conditions, how to retrofit an existing unit to meet a given separation objective while not exceeding operating capacity, or how to select the best existing or pre-fabricated unit to meet a separation objective while maintaining safe operation at a reasonable cost.
