Prior to joining Fisher in 2010, Professor Emily Banis Stoehrer was a Curatorial Research Associate at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A trained fashion and textile historian she received a master's degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology and is currently working towards her PhD in Humanities at Salve Regina University.
In addition to teaching she is just completing her first book, Fashion Design, Referenced (co-authored with Alicia Kennedy). She has also contributed articles to Adornment, Art Jewelry Forum, Exhale, and the Textile Society of America newsletter.
Her personal research interests focuses on 19th and 20th century fashion, fashion theory, and the fashion system. Her academic pursuits have led her to give academic papers as far away as Colonial Williamsburg and the University of Rouen in France. She also lectures locally at various museums, guilds, and historical societies, but the classroom remains her favorites place to talk about new discoveries.
Prof. Stoehrer is thrilled to be working with such a diverse student body at Fisher College. As program director for fashion design and merchandising she teaches course in textiles, costume history, and visual merchandising, bringing students to area retailers and museums to make the experience inside the classroom come to life.
With fashion moving so quickly in the 21st century you never know what's going to happen next. Keep up with the fashion department by "liking" the Fisher College Fashion Club on Facebook.
