    Vestoj, Paris, summer 2012

    A new issue of Vestoj – The Journal of Sartorial Matters is out, on the intriguing and important subject of shame. Mathilda has contributed the paper The Green Shades of Shame which explores the role of shame in a lack of engagement with sustainability in fashion, and generally. The paper argues that shame is part of the very construction of fashion itself, and even that society needs fashion as a condensed zone of shame. It calls for a more nuanced discussion on fashion and sustainability which fully embraces the complex individual and societal motivations that contribute to making fashion.

    Mathilda contributed a paper in the German interdisciplinary magazine Dare‘s issue Apocalypse Green. Mathilda’s paper discusses the preoccupation with novelty in fashion and society, and how this preoccupation also plays a  problematic role in creating sustainable futures, in how it limits our attention span and engagement with even potentially very helpful concepts and frameworks, such as resilience or cradle-to-cradle.

    Nordic Textile Journal, University of Borås, Borås 2010

    Mathilda contributed a paper to the Nordic Textile Journal’s special issue on communication. Her piece explores the potential of language and a process of languaging as powerful design interventions that can be auspiciously directed at the paradigm level of a system – in this instance the fashion system, with the aim of achieving more a sustainable fashion industry. The article critically and creatively synthesizes and builds upon some of the researcher’s previous work, in the realm of fashion and sustainability, and metadesign.
