Design History Society Annual Conference 2017
2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the first Design History Society Annual Conference, held in Brighton in 1977, as well as the 30th anniversary of the Journal of Design History. In celebration of this landmark, we invite proposals for papers addressing the historiography of design and the history of the discipline, with the aim to curate a special anniversary strand on the making and unmaking of design history.

We are inviting proposals for individual papers of 20 minutes, or proposals for thematically coherent panels of three papers. Panel proposals must include abstracts for all three papers in addition to a short description of the panel theme.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 20 January 2017

The full call for papers can be acceseed here.

Please submit your proposals in the form of anonymous MS Word documents to: dhs-2017@ifikk.uio.no
