The New Issue of “Bias” Is Here!


This past Saturday, Bias launched its newest issue “Fashion and Surveillance” complete with amazing scholarly work and art from some of our students right here in MAFS and beyond. The editors of the third issue, Laura Sagadore and Stephanie Herold, challenged its contributors to “consider the ways fashion and surveillance intersect.” From New York to London to Australia, several met the challenge, contributing pieces on Burning Man, David Bowie, dress and age, and more. Find below a complete listing of the table of contents and like Bias on Facebook to find out how to get your hands on a copy!
