Founded in 1977, the Design History Society works internationally to promote and support the study and understanding of design history.
The Society welcomes members from other disciplines such as anthropology, architecture and art history, business history, the history of science and technology, craft history, cultural studies, economic and social history, design and design management studies.
The Society encourages liberal and inclusive definitions of design history and its methods, approaches and resources. These definitions take in the function, form and materials of artefacts of the pre-industrial and industrial periods, up to and including the present day. These definitions also include artefacts' production, dissemination and consumption as well as their cultural, economic and social meanings.
