Clark University professor Robert Ross will host "Dying for Fashion: A First-Hand Report on the Hidden Cost of Our Clothes" on Monday, January 25 at 4 p.m. at Higgins Lounge at Clark's Dana Commons. 

Ross will talk about the conditions of the global apparel business, where profits are outweighing the livelihood of workers. 

The event is free and open to the public. 

Professor Ross 

Professor Ross has conducted research on the resurgence of sweatshops in the global apparel industry since the 1990s. Ross' book "Slaves to Fashion: Poverty and the Abuse in the New Sweatshop" shines a light on the unseen horrors faced by the apparel industry workers, both in the United States and abroad. 

Ross helped establish Clark University's undergraduate program in Urban Development and Social Change. 

Clark University 

Clark University was founded in 1887 in Worcester, Massachusetts and is a liberal arts based research university addressing social and human imperatives on a global scale.
