Abstract [en]

They main focus of this article is the conferment ceremony lecture, that was given by me as the promotor of the Faculty of Arts at Uppsala university the 1st of June in 2018. In this article I describe the conferment ceremony and publish my lecture, that is shortly summarized below.

It is true that our clothing shapes us in many ways, and sends multiple signals. This makes clothes and customs of dress extremely suitable for ethnological cultural analysis. Clothes can e.g. signal the group we belong to, our taste in music or our political preferences. The Beatles made long hair fashionable for men, punk made safety pins through the cheek a fashion statement. Different professional groups dress in official and unofficial uniforms, for practical or ideological reasons. Our clothes declare who we are or want to be, whether we want to fit in or stick out.

They are an ingenious symbolic system, a mirror of society that can reveal the structure of hierarchies, gender orders and religious systems.
