The School of Art Design History and Theory at Parsons and the History Department at the New School for Social Research are sponsoring Design/History/Revolution: An Experimental Workshop at the Frontier of Art, Design, Politics and Historical Study on April 27-28, 2012. This conference explores the relationships between design, history and revolution and brings together scholars and practitioners from the humanities, sciences, social sciences, design, and art to consider how design acts as a historical agent, a contested category, and a mode of historical analysis.

The keynote speaker will be Barry Bergdoll Professor of Architectural History in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University and the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the MoMA.
