That Fair and Warlike Form: The Fashion of Armour

Ian Sturrock, Barbara Brownie (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This edited collection covers the intersection between protective armour, and culture, society, and aesthetics.

Chapters include:
* Historical and/or archaeological approaches, considering the social and cultural meaning of particular artefacts and/orarmour trends, perhaps relating to armour designed with a particular appearance in mind, or armour designs that had a notable influence on civilian fashion trends.
* Cultural studies, sociological, media studies, film studies, game studies, or related approaches, relating to the depiction of armour, or armour¬influenced fashion, in fiction and/or documentary in any medium, whether concerning historical or present¬day Earth, or invented worlds and settings.
* Artistic, design, and/or craft-¬based approaches. This could be in the form of practice¬-based research, perhaps documenting the production of a piece of fashionable armour, or art depicting such a piece of armour, and the research that went into the production, whether the product is primarily for commercial or artistic purposes. Studies of embellishment and decoration of armour would also be welcome.
