This panel seeks papers that address the disruptive role of clothes along with the possibility they provide the individual or a group to challenge a super-imposed set of rules and to create discontinuity within their community. 

The purpose of this panel is to shed light on the many functions of clothes in literature and cinema but not only, and on how clothing and garments can become symbols of individual power and redemption. Throughout what they choose to wear or not to wear, men and women send a clear message against the passive acceptance of injustices and prevarications. Moreover, clothes may represent the ability for the subject to denounce the establishment and to assert their freedom and individuality. 

Proposals are invited for presentations on any aspect of rebellion, disruptiveness, critique and provocation that a piece of garment can generate in the society, this being either fictional, as found in novels, poems and films, or real. 

Papers that embrace an interdisciplinary approach are especially welcome.
