Gender and Design: Studies in Material Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 - 1:53pm
Jennifer Rich/Hofstra University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

This edited volume will examine intersections of Design and Gender across a range of historical moments, political environments and material categories. We invite readings and materialist critiques of designed objects, exchanges, spaces, instruments, affects and styles as well as evaluations of ‘design practice’ as gendered work, performance, or representation. Of particular interest: contemporary design theory, transnational design events, ecological design, new technocentric or scientific design, posthuman material culture and local design archaeologies as they relate to the politics of gender and agency in our post-millennial era.

Dirty Places: geographies of waste

deadline for submissions:

We are putting together a special issue tentatively called “Dirty places: geographies of waste”. “Waste” is a broad and multifaceted concept, always open to interpretation. We want to keep it that way, partly because we are looking for fresh voices, and partly because we want to facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation. However, for clarity’s sake, waste is here defined as “material that we failed to use” (Gille, 2018). Gille’s succinct definition reads like an updated version of Mary Douglas’s (1966) classic take on “dirt” —“matter out of place” —, this time formulated under the banner of the Anthropocene. For a deeper look into the concept of waste, please read the following texts:

The Theme

This year’s theme is an opportunity to reflect on how you have come to know your research through the varying ways it has been shared and presented.

Emerging out of the Without End 2018 symposium theme of ‘the documents in which research ideas are inspired and found’, the Without End 2019 symposium, now moves on to how we are tasked with collecting these ideas in to the propositions we can share. It is about how we, as postgraduate and early career researchers, can begin to breach discourse in numerous ways and the effects this can bring.
