Design History Society

Design History Society The Design History Society works internationally to promote and support the study and understanding of design history. The Society welcomes members from other disciplines such as anthropology, architecture and art history, business history, the history of science and technology, craft history, cultural studies, economic and social history, design and design management studies.

The Society encourages liberal and inclusive definitions of design history and its methods, approaches and resources. These definitions take in the function, form and materials of artefacts of the pre-industrial and industrial periods, up to and including the present day. These definitions also include artefacts' production, dissemination and consumption as well as their cultural, economic and social meanings.

Using a “crip” or disability justice lens, this panel ponders how environmental design and technology can be construed as key aspects of modern disability experience. Ranging from architecture for hearing impairment to design for chemical sensitivities, this panel probes these complicities.

Objects Revealed is an online exhibition newly launched on the Black Cultural Archives website, see: https://www.bcaexhibits.org/exhibits/objects-revealed Curated by Sandra Shakespeare (Black British Museum) who I've been working with during lockdown to research the background history of these eclectic and fascinating objects about which very little is known. Can you help? Take a look and get in touch if you can tell us more about any of these objects. The microsite has been created by Florence Okoye (Natural History Museum) and there is a social media campaign produced by Bosola Ajenifuja (Google Arts and Culture). The project has been generously supported by the Arts Council.
CALL FOR PAPERS What do fashion, style, clothing and various ‘embodied states’ reveal about Irish culture and society since 1900? Clothing, textiles and styles of self-presentation mark key moments in Irish history and this seminar will bring together researchers to reflect on how and why they translated into potent images and objects that circulated at home and abroad. The seminar explores various cultural practices (past and present), encompassing questions of leisure, conflict, governance, trauma, race and migration, social class, gender and sexuality to assess the under-researched role of clothing cultures in shaping Irish public life. Deadline for abstracts: 15 January 2021
AUTHORS SHOULD PLACE OUT-OF-PRINT BOOKS ON THE NET! -- It is getting harder to re-publish books. Students scan books for their classes… because students prefer to get books free on the Net with a click, rather than to buy, or go to library. -- Trausti Valsson, https://notendur.hi.is/tv/ prof. of planning, Univ. of Iceland; has now placed his 14 books free on his page to set an example. Authors should place their out-of-print books on the Net, as their costs have been covered. It is a big loss if important books become unavailable. The cry of the day is Open Access! Comments on Valsson´s books: Joe McBride, Prof. at LAEP, UC Berkeley: … “Shaping the Future should be required reading in introductory courses in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning for its insights into the field of planning in the 20th century and its ability to inspire students to be courageous, creative-thinkers.“ Prof. Sir Peter Hall, UCL London, in his preface to “Planning in Iceland”: "Trausti Valsson has achieved an extra ordinary feat of scholarship.“ ... "Valsson´s book sets a new standard in historical scholarship and provides a model for other scholars in other countries to follow.” -- Professor Valsson was the first to be awarded the Honorary Prize of The Icelandic Planners“.
I appreciate what the design history society is doing, i am the first Nigerian to have MA in design history and presently working on my PhD in design history too. I will be happy to be a member of the Society. Thank you very much.

Please share the cfp for the Design History Society panel at the College Arts Association Conference in New York February 13-16, 2019 - deadline August 6th Building the Box of Beautiful Things: Contemporary Artists and Design History This panel explores how design-historical concepts have been mobilised within contemporary art (c.1945 to present). Recent analyses have tended to identify ‘crossovers’ between art and design by focussing on how artists integrate their work with design practice to supersede art’s techniques of production and display or to disenchant art and re-engage with the social domain. However, few commentators have considered how arts practitioners (artists and curators) have historicised and legitimated their attempts to put art to use within discourses established in the history of design, principally concerning utility and function, but also taste, labour relations, style, and codes of consumption. In such cases, arts practitioners often put design history to creative use or misuse, challenge or misunderstand (whether wilfully or not) its disciplinary protocols and narratives and take an integrative or fantastic approach to the development of design problems and their logics. In return, correlating contemporary art to design history has allowed these same practitioners to turn outward, to think and practice environmentally, in the social interest, or across cultural distinctions and hierarchies. We invite paper proposals in various subjects areas, including but not limited to: Environmental art and design. Information design and the cognitive arts. The return to making, craft, and decoration. The social turn. Experimental pedagogies. The invocation of key figures within design history, such as Ruskin, Loos, or the Constructivists. Email the following directly to the session chairs [email protected] or [email protected]: Completed session participation proposal form.
