PILOSITIES. ANIMAL VARIETIES AND HUMAN AESTHETICS
Hair, a distinctive feature between animals and humans? Hair and fur mark both the disturbing similarity between man and animal, as well as the radical difference between them. But what about animal hair? What is a more or less abundant hairiness associated with? Articles on fur and animal hair are welcome in this issue. In men, hairiness and its aesthetic or symbolic treatment indicate the differentiation, more or less marked by the times and societies, between genders, social statuses, political positions and options. Several recent works have highlighted the heuristic value of a study about hairiness (see, among others, Hiltebeitel and Miller, 1998 ; Nadjmabadi, 2005 ; Da Silva, 2009; Bromberger -2010- 2015 ; Auzépy and Cornette, 2011 ; Pouvreau, 2014, etc.). Several recent studies have focused on hair, beard and body hair. However, a few have shown interest toward eyebrows or eyelashes, the latter’s treatment methods varying according to historical periods, cultures, age groups, fashions, personal intentions. We expect contributions on the eyebrows, and more preferably on the eyelashes. Contributions on other themes, involving hairiness, are also the welcome.
