EX LIBRIS: Pockets with Hannah Carlson

April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Who gets pockets, and why?

It’s a subject that stirs up plenty of passion: Why do men’s clothes have so many pockets and women’s so few? And why are the pockets on women’s clothes often too small to fit phones, if they even open at all? In Pockets: An Intimate History of How We Keep Things Close, Hannah Carlson, a lecturer in dress history at the Rhode Island School of Design, reveals the issues of gender politics, security, sexuality, power, and privilege tucked inside our pockets.
