We will examine ‘the social life of clothes’ through global systems of production and consumption. Clothing will be our analytic tool—or window—into the world around us. By investigating the role clothing plays in relation to social life, we will consider a wide range of issues and social problems such as those related to labour rights, the environment, gender and class, and the role of transnational stakeholders working to confront challenges. To help us unpack the global fashion and apparel industry, we will turn to the 2013 Rana Plaza building collapse. This April marked the 7th year anniversary of Rana Plaza—an unprecedented disaster in Savar, Bangladesh, that killed more than 1,100 workers producing everyday clothing items for Western consumers, including Canadians.
