Research areas

Trine Brun Petersen is Associate Professor at the Department of Design and Communication, University of Southern Denmark, where she teaches Design and Fashion Culture. She obtained her Ph.D. from Design School Kolding/Aarhus School of Architecture on prison design and how design might be used to orchestrate behavior. Her recent research interest centers on clothing and fashion in everyday settings with a particular focus on how clothing constructs and disciplines users. This has been explored in relation to ‘textile systems’, such as uniform programs, as well as in relation to the development of new business models in the fashion industry. Her current research project focuses on the material culture of childhood with a particular interest in children’s clothing as a commercial and cultural phenomenon. She has published articles on fashion and dress in international journals and anthologies and is currently co-editing a book on Green Design Culture with Rosita Satell and Tau Ulv Lenskjold.
