Anne’s research is concerned with the relationship between dress and the Self. She is particularly interested in the role of clothing in the construction and maintenance of the Self, and its social and psychological impact. Her research focuses on three related areas: the relationship of clothing to body image, its ability to transcend body issues, and the rise of modest fashion; the potential for clothing as a vehicle for power and control, both self-control and that of others; and the role of fashion and clothing in social influence, particularly as it pertains to style icons. Her current research project addresses some of these aspects through the lens of dress in Muslim women.
