Call For Conference Convenors - Design History Society

Posted on Friday, 10th February 2017

The Annual Design History Society Conference is a prestigious, international event which offers a platform for an interdisciplinary approach to research and critical debate in design history. The proposal for the 2018 should be based on themes or perspectives on cultures of design.

The Design History Society works towards furthering global dialogues on design and warmly welcomes proposals from individuals and institutions that support and engage in teaching and research in design history. Recent conferences have been hosted in Ahmedabad (2013), Oxford (2014), San Francisco (2015), Middlesex (2016) and the 2017 conference will be held in Oslo. Information on past conferences can be found on the DHS website.

In addition to bringing your institution to the attention of the design history community, this event can also offer an opportunity for delegates to visit local collection and significant sites in the study of design history.
