This talk will focus on the process of introducing and developing modernity in a particular sector of society—how to dress—in East Asia during a tumultuous period of great change in the early twentieth century. Based on the book, Fashion, Identity, and Power in Modern Asia, the editor, Kyunghee Pyun, explains the process of modernization of East Asian clothing at this juncture in history.

The author will also discuss how to maintain a good relationship with the editorial team of an academic publisher and how to identify potential publishers. Finding a good match is also similar for artists looking for a gallery or musicians looking for a label. Small talks and networking opportunities can lead to a successful contract. As an art historian, the author also talks about ups and downs of searching for images to be included in publications.
