I agree that this sort of "discussion" would be well suited to Fashion In Depth ... where interested members can discuss various ideas and theories related to fashion. Rather than an all emcompassing thread with a wide variety of topics, for example, you could post the ideas in your paper, supporting it with whatever information you have and this might stimulate conversaion about your theories. So for each theory about fashion .... we could have an individual thread in FID.
However ... if you are looking for a place just to have a list of resources, a library so to speak, that would be better in Careers, Education, et al. I think. But ... I'm thinking it's probably a bit broad in subject matter. We would have to decide what belongs in there and what we should call it to attract members who might be able to contribute information. To be honest, I'm not sure many members would have anything to contribute. We'd love this forum to be upgraded to academic standards, but the majority of members here are mainly just fashion lovers ... not intellectuals or academians.
We already have a few threads in CEB about "books" ... but mainly just how to's and books about the work and life of various designers.
But ... if you think you have lots of resources you can post to get it going, I'd be happy to open to a new thread in CEB .... maybe call it "Academic Resources for Fashion Studies" or something like that, and we'd have to place some "rules" in the first thread to explain what belongs in the thread. Just PM me with your resources, if you are interested in having us start such a thread.
