Si Wi Yah: Sartorial Representations of the African Diaspora by Costume Institute of the African Diaspora

May 4, 2018 - May 5, 2018


The Costume Institute of the African Diaspora’s first dress conference seeks to understand how Diaspora communities came to be visually represented or have developed the agency to represent themselves and establish their identities through clothing and adornment.

This conference brings together researchers from across the globe who are working within the field of African Diaspora studies. The work presented here will look at the myriad of different factors which have affected the way people of African heritage have represented themselves in the world.
