Call for papers: ICDHS 2012 – Design Frontiers: territories, concepts, technologies

8th Conference of the International Committee for Design History and Design Studies

History marks territories that in some way or another are reflected in design.
Since the first ICDHS conference, held in Barcelona in 1999, significant steps were taken to draw attention to the nature of design studies, practice and history in a wider world context. Parallel to that, the configuration of design landscapes has been significantly altered by education, technology and national state policies intended to promote local industries and sites by means of design.

The 8th ICDHS conference, “Design Frontiers: territories, concepts, technologies”, aims to discuss how design history and design studies may push the limits of design knowledge. The frontiers of design may be challenged by the exploration of new territories, by the establishment of new concepts, by the emergence of new technologies, as well as by rediscovering the past and by finding new ways of applying current wisdom.
