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. Paper proposals are being accepted until February 29, 2012.
Conference themes include: the history of design education; identities and territories; national policies on design; techniques and technologies; and the international face of design.
The conference will be held from September 3-6, 2012 in São Paulo, Brazil and is being hosted by University of São Paulo and Mackenzie Presbyterian University.
