, but they are good at representing those whose affects are too uncivilised, whose views of the ‘elites’ too harsh, whose lust for a new order too impetuous and whose enthusiasm for exclusion too barbaric. Thus, they want to be like the wolves in parliament, as Goebbels had described the National Socialists, but they remain largely irrelevant, belittled and ineffective, sheep, that is, in wolves’ clothing. So for a number of reasons, this democratic impetus remains loud and yet unheard given a political climate in which they feel utterly disregarded and disdained

mission schools and others coming from traditional Islamic schools in Zanzibar or elsewhere in the Arab world. Additionally, the assistants almost always donned Western dress. Here, though, the vexed position of Africans in Germany was brought into sharp relief, as clothing itself was somehow considered ‘un-African’. For instance, even though Meinhof had many previous African

margins. Everybody now speaks the language of sustainability. Yet a large and loud proportion of those doing so do not have planetary interests at the forefront of their thinking. The challenge, in the 2020s, is to recognise these wolves in sheep’s clothing, to push not just for change, but for the rapid and radical change that is needed as well. Anything less is just gambling on the rain.

Clothing’s Impact on the Body in Italy and England, 1550–1650
Elizabeth Currie

Studies of early modern dress frequently focus on its connection with status and identity, overlooking clothing’s primary function, namely to protect the body and promote good health. The daily processes of dressing and undressing carried numerous considerations: for example, were vital areas of the body sufficiently covered, in the correct fabrics and colours, in order to maintain an ideal body temperature? The health benefits of clothing were countered by the many dangers it carried, such as toxic dyes, garments that were either too tight or voluminous, or harboured dirt and diseases that could infect the body. This article draws on medical treatises and health manuals printed and read in Italy and England, as well as personal correspondence and diaries, contextualised with visual evidence of the styles described. It builds on the current, wider interest in preventative medicine, humoral theory, health and the body in the early modern period by focusing in depth on the role of clothing within these debates.

Julius Caesar
Maria Wyke

In studio publicity, trade papers, reviews, articles, and educational materials, Joseph L. Mankiewiczs Julius Caesar (1953) was described and accepted as a faithful and mostly pleasing adaptation of Shakespearean drama to the Hollywood screen. As Variety accurately predicted, it achieved four Oscar nominations, one award for art direction and set decoration, high grosses, a hit soundtrack album, and several subsequent revivals. With the content more or less given, contemporary discussion focussed closely on how the verbal had been visualised, on how theatre had been turned into cinema – in short, on the film‘s style. It is with contemporary and subsequent readings of the film‘s style that this article is concerned, where, following David Bordwell, style is taken to mean ‘a films systematic and significant use of techniques of the medium’. But whereas Bordwell analyses film style directly in terms of an aesthetic history he considers to be distinct from the history of the film industry, its technology, or a films relation to society, I explore interpretations of one film‘s style that are heavily invested with socio-political meaning. If, in Bordwell‘s organic metaphor, style is the flesh of film, these readings of style explicitly dress that flesh in socio-political clothing. This analysis of Julius Caesar, then, is not another contribution to debates about adaptation, theatre on film, or Shakespeare on screen, but about the politics of film style.

Present at the show are the designers who have transformed the textiles, produced by refugees in Kenya, into pieces of clothing for American consumers who wish to support social entrepreneurship as a development and gender strategy. However, the refugee women, whose artisan efforts undergird the fashion show, are absent, reinforcing the traditional production patterns of periphery and core that
