Based on participant and non-participant observation in retail and wholesale settings as well as eighty in-depth interviews conducted throughout eleven months of fieldwork with Romanian merchants and consumers from the capital city, two cities and two towns, it argues that dress speaks to agents' identity, it inscribes their choices in social order, it classifies them and acts as an index of their moral worth. By looking at four types of clothing (non-branded, new authentic brand item, counterfeit brand item and preowned brand item), this thesis argues that the morality of dress is informed by both its physical and social properties. Moreover, it argues that the physical properties of dress become morally and socially charged and shape its worth. Furthermore, this thesis argues that dress is used as a prop for presentability and as an implement to gain an edge in social interaction. It argues that the morality of place is translated into notions of worth of objects and agents. It looks at claims of entitlement agents lay in their consumption of branded commodities and the way their accounts become objectified in the portrait of the morally aware consumer. At the same time, it deals with the importance of dress as a cue of interaction and the role it plays in the negotiation of social order. Last but not least, it addresses the ability of dress not only to further social interaction, but also to limit and contain it. Subjects: Clothing and dress - Social aspects - Romania

This dissertation analyzes sexual morality discourse through a reading of dressed female bodies in Turkey. It explores how sexual morality (ahlak) is shaped by Islamist and secularist discourses in Turkey and the ways in which ahlak (morality) imposes control mechanisms over women's bodies in Turkey. The thesis argues that even though secularist and Islamist discourses are seen in a dualistic framework, the patriarchal sexual moralities they impose on the bodies of women are not binary oppositions. Both utilize dress as a technology of the body to conceal female sexual bodies and regulate the visibility of women in public space. However, as a result of the different ways in which sexual moral norms are inhabited, these two discourses are perceived as oppositional. Thirty-one interviews were conducted with women involved in women's movements in Istanbul and Ankara (Turkey) in 2010. The data analysis suggests that the sexual morality that aims at hiding the female sexual body through dress constrains the mobility and freedom of women in public spaces in Turkey. The study also shows that sexual morality has been maintained through state surveillance (such as laws and regulations on public morality and on dress) and through the public gaze (such as the judging gaze, sexual harassment and violence). Yet, the analysis of the sexual violence cases in regards to sexual morality and dress point out that sexual morality has become more conservative as a result of the increased conservatism in politics in the last decade. While this analysis shows sexual morality to be a disciplinary discourse and a practice producing 'docile bodies', it also reveals that women are not passively subjected to this morality. Women fashion different modalities of agencies that reveal various ways of living, embodying, as well as subverting and challenging the norms of sexual morality in Turkey.
