Fashion Culture, History, and Social Justice minor

If the content in AMD 165 was of much interest to you, the Fashion, Culture, History, and Social Justice minor in the Apparel, Merchandising, and Design program at Iowa State University might be something you want to explore.

The minor consists of three parts:

  • the 3-credit course AMD 165 Dress, Appearance, and Diversity in Society
  • 6 credits from a list of “core” classes in area of history, social psychology, and/or cultural studies related to fashion. These courses have an entire focus on social justice perspectives or at least 25% of the curriculum has a focus on social justice perspectives.
    • A M D 354 History of European and North American Dress
    • A M D 356 History of 20th Century Fashion
    • A M D 366 History of Menswear
    • A M D 458 Queer Fashions, Styles, and Bodies
    • AESHM 462 Black Lives Matter: Fashion, Liberation, and the Fight for Freedom
  • 6 credits from a list of electives that complement the “core” of the minor. These 6 credits may not specifically look at issues of power, privilege, and social inequity, yet the content does focus on historically marginalized communities (e.g. African Americans, Native Americans, women, queer community) or related topics. Many of courses in this option do focus on power and privilege, which is great for the minor.
