  • ‘Degrees of Degrees’: An Alternative Structure

    • Authors: Graham Zellick QC
      Abstract: This article refers to Neil K. Dickson’s article, ‘Degrees of Degrees’, in Transactions of the Burgon Society, 19 (2019), pp. 183–203, and provides an alternative taxonomy with the emphasis on contemporary practice. It affords an understanding of academic dress because academic dress varies not only with specific degrees but with the category of degree, subject to the caveat that nearly all generalizations about academic dress tend to be wrong. The article also discusses the use of the title ‘Dr’ with honorary degrees and begins with some comments on Dr Dickson’s analysis of degrees.

  • Reaping the Whirlwind: American Degree and Subject Colours

    • Authors: Kenny Suit
      Abstract: A committee of representatives from several universities in the U.S. East Coast, called the Intercollegiate Commission on Academic Costume, standardized the American system of academic costume in 1895. The keystone of the standards was the hood, in its shape, edging, and colours. This article looks at changes to the colours assigned to degrees and areas of study from 1962 through the present. Charts showing when the colours started, and in some cases stopped, being used make up the appendices.

  • A Grave Decent Gown: The 1690 Glasgow Gown Order

    • Authors: Neil K. Dickson
      Abstract: In 1690 the University of Glasgow ordered gown for two of its officers, the invoice for which is in the University’s archives. This article relies on the document to examine the designs of the gowns in details, to see how they influenced academic dress at the University to the present day, and to understand the political statement they made at the time, when newly appointed officers were seeking to exercise their authority in the context of a changed national political scene.

  • The Evolution of Undergraduate Academic Dress at the University of
           Cambridge and its Constituent Colleges

    • Authors: Brian M. Newman
      Abstract: This paper charts the development of the distinctive academic costume worn by undergraduate members of England’s second oldest university, Cambridge. It follows the evolution in undergraduate academic dress from differentiation based upon social class and wealth (and regulated as such by the University) to one of differentiation, in most historical cases at least, by the college of which undergraduates are members, about which the University’s only current stipulation is that gowns should be knee-length.

  • Cap and Gown' Use of Headgear at Graduation in UK Universities in the
           Twenty-First Century

    • Authors: Martin J. Hardcastle
      Abstract: Academic headwear, partticularly in the form of the square cap or mortar-board, is perhaps the most widely recognised symbol of educational achievement in the world. This article surveys the current practice of wearing academic caps of all types at graduation ceremonies in UK universities, to understand whether there are common factors in the use or disuse of headwear, and thus tentatively to explain the wide variation in practice that is seen in the twenty-first century.

  • ‘Different Forms of Gowns for All Sorts of Scholars in their Several
           Ranks’: Academic Undress at Oxford in 1635

    • Authors: Alex Kerr
      Abstract: This is a study of a one-page manuscript in the Oxford University Archives with the title ‘Different Forms of Gowns for All Sorts of Scholars in their Several Ranks’, dated June 1635. It was clearly written in connection with the Laudian Code of statutes, which was drafted in 1634 and adopted in 1636. The Code included regulations on university dress and its use at Oxford that would remain in force for 134 years. The document gives a concise specification for Oxford gowns at a time when other written records providing such detail are lacking and pictorial evidence is sparse. This article places ‘Different Forms’ in the context of the Laudian Code and provides a transcription. It then explains the various ranks and the requirements for the gowns and their facings and ornament. A section is devoted to four problematic terms for articles of dress. A commentary discusses significant points in the document, comparing the dress with Oxford gowns in the period leading up to 1635. A table summarizing the provisions in ‘Different Forms’, the text of a second manuscript (at Magdalen College) and a glossary of materials to be used for trimming the gowns are given in appendices.

  • ‘Outdated and Anachronistic, but That’s Part of the Fun’: Faculty
           Attitudes and Beliefs Regarding Academic Dress at a Second Land-Grant

    • Authors: Stephen L. Wolgast et al.
      Abstract: This research sought to understand attitudes and behaviours of faculty at Kansas State University and used a previous research study, at Michigan State University, to validate the instrumentation developed while comparing and contrasting results between two Land-Grant institutions. Results of this study indicated consistent trends when comparing both of the Land-Grant universities about faculty attitude and behaviour. Due to the varied results between Kansas State and Michigan State in this study, the authors suggest further replication of the survey instrument at other Land-Grant institutions. This study builds on previous research suggesting that compelling evidence exists indicating that here are many individuals interested in the continued use of academic dress at Land-Grant universities.

  • A Brief History of Academic Dress in the Middle East and the Maghreb

    • Authors: Valentina S. Grub
      Abstract: There are hundreds of universities in the Middle East and the Maghreb, yet the academic dress that they wear, if any, varies widely. Colour standards for hoods are non-existent, and gown shapes vary among British, American, and European shapes, sometimes incorporating elements of each into a single gown, and elaborated with local cultural details. This article examines the current, fluid state of academic dress in the region, where it is not indigenous and is one element of the after-effects of the imposed colonial educational systems.

  • Reforms to Scottish Academical Dress during the 1860s

    • Authors: Jonathan C. Cooper
      Abstract: Although hoods were worn in the ancient Scottish universities during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, their use went into decline thereafter. This article focusses on the re-introduction of hoods in Scotland, mostly during the 1860s. After consideration of the academical dress in use earlier during the nineteenth century, the four ancient universities are treated in the order in which they adopted comprehensive hood schemes. Primary sources, in the form of university minutes and portraits, and secondary sources, mostly in the form of contemporary accounts, are examined.
