Personal profile

Research interests

Aurore Damoiseaux is a PhD student researching the political and social weight of dress at Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp (1981-2000). Her research includes oral testimonies and object analysis to reflect on the use of dress objects at the camp in Greenham Common to embody the fight against nuclear weapons.

She is interested in dress as carrier of emotion and memory, and as tool to promote ideas and ideology. Through her research, Aurore explores themes such as the creation of alternative communities, feminist theories of the 1970s and 1980s, representations of women in mass-media, and the musealisation of political events.


Aurore is PGR Representative to the Fashion and Dress History strand of the Centre for Design History.
