29. Roundtable: Appropriation, What is it Good For? With Regan Loggans
Welcome to the second episode in the Unravel Roundtable Series. In this episode Dana and Jasmine talk to academic activist Regan Loggans about the history of cultural appropriation in fashion. Together they define appropriation and go all the way back to ancient Greece and Rome to cover a range of appropriation cases in fashion into the present.
Appropriation:”Taking possession of something, or taking something over, without permission.” or the adoption or use of the elements of one culture by members of a different culture. Often confused with pastiche (which may be a eurocentric conflation) Definition found in “Understand Postmodernism” by Glenn Ward
Acculturation: The process of cultural change and psychological change that results following meeting between cultures. The effects of acculturation can be seen at multiple levels in both interacting cultures.
