Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

How psychologists have sought to explain beauty and attractiveness

across time; the aim is also to encourage students to engage with

appearance in a wide sense including facial disfiguration and body issues,

including cosmetic surgery addiction or the use of the body as “art”. This

is then linked to the fashion cycle and how fashion changes and how self

presentation and clothing are integral to self identity and social group

memberships and symbolic communication. Finally beauty and fashion

are brought together in an examination of the effect of celebrities as role

models on consumers/viewers as indicators of fashion and attractiveness.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Fashion and celebrity along with beauty are multi billion dollar industries,

consequently an examination of the psycho-social processes at work in

these areas presents itself as an innovative and exciting area.

The aims of the course are to facilitate a familiarity and understanding of

how psychologists have sought to explain beauty and attractiveness, as

well as body modification and adornment and how superficially what is

consider attractive or ‘normal’ has changed. This requires the student to

understand basic face processing and the various theoretical approaches

to beauty as well as up to date integrated theories. The aim is also to

encourage students to engage with appearance in a wide sense including

facial disfiguration and body issues, including cosmetic surgery addiction

or the use of the body as “art” and clothing (fashion). By the end of the

module students will be expected to have an appreciation of the different

types of explanations put forward for dress and adornment including

tattooing and piercing, as well as the fashion cycle and how these

practices and trends have moved from sub culture to main stream.

The course will consider the different approaches to and explanations for

the fashion cycle and process and how this has been accounted for in

psycho-social terms both historically and currently and to gain a

familiarity with the concept of fashion and dress as non verbal

communication and symbolic interaction. The marketing of fashion, and

the motivations of the wearer- self worth, role adoption, luxury and fake

good purchase. Impression management and the study of effects of

appearance on others are examined in terms of the ‘beauty halo effect’,

be it initial evaluations of strangers or even in a legal setting.

The aims of the fame component are to examine the nature of fame and

the effect of celebrities/stars who act as fashion and beauty role models.
