This talk examines cultural ideas around vanity and fashion, and looks at both its pleasures – and its perils. Using a range of images, museum objects, and drawing on new scientific evidence, this talk will hopefully provoke interesting debate and discussion around the ways in which fashion has been and still is a mirror of our society.
About Cambridge Third Age Learning (CTAL)
Cambridge Third Age Learning (CTAL) is a movement that encourages learning and discovery experiences for those in the “third age”—the stage in one’s life beyond full-time employment. By cultivating opportunities for discussion and engaging the expertise of local university professors and community professionals, CTAL supports those who have an intellectual curiosity and an interest in life-long learning. At Idea Exchange, our hope is to foster a self-organized group which would create CTAL programs throughout the year with our support as a venue and promotional vehicle.
Cost: $10 per lecture, HST is included.
