Biography

Elizabeth Kutesko is a cultural historian and alumna of the Courtauld Institute of Art, where she obtained her PhD in 2016. Her research explores fashion as a transnational form of modernity, which ties together geography – telling stories of the land; nationality – telling stories of the nation; and identity – telling stories of the self. She leads the MA in Fashion Communication: Fashion Critical Studies and the BA in Fashion Communication: Fashion History & Theory at Central Saint Martins. She is the author of Fashioning Brazil: Globalization and the Representation of Brazilian Dress in National Geographic (Bloomsbury, 2018) and is currently working on a new book Fashion and the Devil's Railroad: Dress, Temporality, and Modernities in the Brazilian Amazon (Bloomsbury, forthcoming).
