5 September, 10am - 3:30pm

The Design History Society will host a Publishing & Research Methods Workshop in conjunction with the 2018 Annual DHS Conference, Design and Displacement, hosted by the Parsons School of Design, New York.

Aimed at graduate, post-graduate, early-career and established researchers in Design Studies, Design History and related fields, this workshop invites participants to join researchers, editors and writers to explore and consider processes of publishing in academic and digital landscapes. Representatives of journals will address the submission policies and expectations of their publications – their remit, approach and peer review processes – in addition to advising on the highlights, pitfalls and opportunities in preparing for publication.

Editors and researchers will also share their experiences in preparing and publishing manuscripts, and will advise on the formation and framing of proposals for disseminating research from books to online publishing. Attendees and speakers will engage in discussions surrounding practices of publishing now, and the future of publishing in and around Design History. Issues on digital scholarship, writing across various forums, Open Access publishing and copyright legislation will feature throughout the talks followed by a roundtable that will enliven and explore topics emerging from the discussion.

The Research Methods workshop, aimed at early-career researchers and research students, will generate a platform for discussion on research sources for Design History and Design Studies. The aim of this workshop is to share ideas on the successes and limitations of multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research in relation to research methods and methodologies.

The DHS Publishing & Research Methods Workshop is limited to 20 participants and is free to attend. If you wish to participate in this workshop, please e-mail Elli Michaela Young: designhistorysociety@gmail.com by 18 August 2018 to secure a place.
