    Profile

    Morna Laing holds a PhD in Cultural Studies from the University of the Arts London. Her research interests include feminism, fashion media, and the culture of sustainability.

    Prior to joining Parsons, she was a Senior Lecturer at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, where she coordinated the Theory program for BA Textile Design. She has also lectured at the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins.

    Laing is the author of Picturing the Woman-child: Feminism, Fashion and the Female Gaze, a monograph published by Bloomsbury Academic (forthcoming 2020). Her writing has appeared in a range of peer-reviewed journals, such as Fashion Theory, Sexualities, and Critical Studies in Fashion and Beauty. In 2017, she co-organised Revisiting the Gaze, an international conference that re-evaluated practices of looking in light of digital culture and the recent resurgence in feminist activism.
