The Anti-Fashion(ing) of Desire: Readings I, II & III

Starting 2021 after the Fall Semester, I have to/want to start reading some more of the books on my PhD Exam Reading List. So I created a reading syllabus out of some of the books I’ll be reading/having to read under the topic of “The Anti-Fashion(ing) of Desire.” The majority of the reading is psychoanalytic in nature, but it would be great to get the chance to read these books with some people interested in Fashion as well as Theory. Perhaps, we can teach each other things about both as well as make friends in the midst of this post-apocalyptic nightmare we call reality. Also! If not, I have to read these books anyway so they are on the list for that reason. The order is of an order that makes sense to me.

PS. I may add things to this reading list leading up to 2021 that might make it more … how do you say? … “Fashionable” as I find material that might be relevant.
