The last month or so has been quite the journey! Throughout it I’ve been reflecting a lot about my purpose and how I want to move forward in this career I’ve chosen as a “public-facing scholar.” And this newsletter/blog, my Redressing Fashion podcast, and my social media activities have certainly occupied a big portion of my reflections.
I feel like it was yesterday that I was writing last month’s roundup directly from London. And while it was only a month ago, it somehow seems like three lives …
September completely flew by! I find it quite hard to believe that the month is already over and, to be completely honest with you, I’m not even sure about what I did with my life for the past 4 weeks (since I wrote my last monthly roundup).
But then there have been a lot of exciting things going on in my life.
After taking a break from fashion to recover from burnout and reflect on my next steps, I can now say that I am still committed to continuing research in fashion, art, and design history and theory, and bridging the gap between art and design scholarship and the creative industries and art market.
