The second annual Graduate Symposium at the Bard Graduate Center will explore how identity influences design. Do objects or structures reflect the personas of their designers? Does personality make a difference? Is personality context or content? How do historians approach an object whose maker is unknown? What role do personal archives, diaries, or anecdotes play in the construction of design histories?
In the spirit of interdisciplinary scholarship, the symposium committee welcomes abstracts from graduate students in any discipline and from any period in order to generate an atmosphere of critical discussion and open dialogue
To apply, please submit a CV and a 1 - 2 page abstract for a half-hour presentation to the email address below.
Abstracts will be accepted no later than 31 January 2003. All notifications will be sent by 17 February 2003.
