Networks of Design responds to recent academic interest in the ‘networks’ of interactions that surround, inform and shape design and visual culture. Studying networks foregrounds infrastructure, negotiations, processes, strategies of interconnection, and the heterogeneous relationships between people and things. Networks can include people, social groups, artefacts, devices, entities and ideas.
Keynote speakers include: Professor Bruno Latour, international designer Jurgen Bey and Professor Jeremy Myerson.
Papers are welcome from individuals and/or panels (of not more than three papers) that explore one of five broad themes, Networks of People, Texts, Technology, Things, and Ideas.
For further details about the themes, submission, keynote speakers, and information about the event, please visit the conference web site: www.networksofdesign.co.uk or email Fiona Hackney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for the Call for Papers is 25 February 2008.
