  • Degrees of Degrees

    • Authors: Neil K. Dickson
      Abstract: This article looks at the types of degrees that can be awarded by universities and colleges, discussing the rights and privileges that go with a degree such as the right to wear academic dress and to put letters after your name. The focus is on current and historical practice in Britain, and most of the examples are from British universities.

  • ‘Outdated and Anachronistic, but That’s Part of the Fun’: Faculty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.

           Twenty-First Century

    • Authors: Alice Hynes
      Abstract: When the author was the Academic Registrar at Kingston Polytechnic in the 1990s, she worked on its transition from Polytechnic to University and as such was involved in the decision-making and practical implementation of the first academic dress of the University. This study describes the rationale for the academic dress and seeks to check how far the initial expectations have been fulfilled twenty-five years on from the original decisions.

  • Editor’s Note

    • Authors: Stephen Wolgast
      Abstract: The novel coronavirus and COVID-19 are dramatically changing campus life. Most graduation ceremonies have been cancelled, leaving many thousands of academic gowns unused. The organisation Gowns 4 Good requests donations of gowns, which it donates to hospitals so their medical staffs can use them as personal protective equipment, which is in short supply.
