Retail Ransacked: Theft on the Rise
Decency Exposed: The New Culture Wars
We’re not the fashion police — though we’re asked that question quite often! — but we are keeping a close watch on current developments involving fashion and policing. Join us on the eve of New York Fashion Week for FASHION POLICE, a double-header symposium in partnership with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The first panel, “Retail Ransacked: Theft on the Rise,” will address this growing trend, its causes and effects, and strategies and public/private initiatives to combat it. In case you missed our popular event at San Diego Comic Con, we’ll reprise it with our second panel, “Decency Exposed: The New Culture Wars,” an exploration of obscenity, decency, and current regulation of what we do or don’t wear. We look forward to welcoming you back to campus for the first time since the start of the pandemic! Dress code: Clothed, please.
