Studies in Costume & Performance is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal that aims to encourage, generate and disseminate critical discourse on costume and the relationship between costume and performance. It considers costume as a symbiotic articulation of the body of the performer which is visual, cultural, political, material, temporal and performative. Whether performed live, mediated through a screen, or encountered in an archive, costume embodies and reflects not only the performance, but also societies, cultures and communities.

Clothing Cultures – We all wear clothes. We are all therefore invested at some level in the production and consumption of clothing. This journal intends to embrace issues and themes that are both universal and personal, addressing [and dressing] us all. Increasingly, as we all become accomplished semioticians, clothing becomes the key signifier in determining social interaction and behaviour, and sartorial norms dictate socio-cultural appropriateness. Following the rise of fashion theory, on an everyday level, we all understand that our clothes ‘say’ something about us, about our times, nation, system of values.
