Description

Pedersen (2008-2009) began a discussion of theory development in interpretive dress history scholarship and explained “that there [are] multiple ways to develop and apply theory” and one such way is to identify and analyze relational statements (RSs) (Pedersen, Buckland, & Bates, 2008-2009, p. 73). RSs, Pedersen argued, are important in developing an understanding of the formation of theory at a micro-level. Thinking theoretically is an important skill, but one that should be actively practiced and applied if it is going to aid in professional development and advance scholarship.
