Jilly Traganou will be editing The Journal of Design History’s upcoming Special Issue on Olympic Design. This issue will explore the diverse outlets for design facilitated by modern Olympic games, including graphic design, fashion, architecture, product design, branding campaigns, and services, among others. While the designs generated by Olympic games hold great importance nationally and internationally at the time of their occurrence, few Olympic designs have joined the ranks of the remembered in Design History discourse.
For this Special Issue, Professor Traganou seeks papers that examine the historical narratives of Olympic designs from 1896 to the present. For more detailed information, please follow this link: http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/design/cfp2011.html.
