Hosted by Maya Oppenheimer (Teaching & Learning Officer) and Sabrina Rahman (Membership & Outreach Officer)
The Design History Society will host a Publishing Workshop in conjunction with the 2015 Annual DHS Conference, “How We Live, and How we Might Live”: Design and the Spirit of Critical Utopianism, hosted by California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
Aimed at graduate, post-graduate and early career 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. Hard copies of journals discussed will be provided. Editors and researchers will also share their experiences preparing and publishing manuscripts and will advise on the formation and framing of proposals for disseminating research from books to online publishing.
In line with the conference theme, attendees and speakers will engage in discussions surrounding practices of publishing now, and how we might anticipate and foresee a new landscape in academic writing. Issues on digital scholarship, writing across various forums, and copyright legislation will feature throughout the talks followed by a workshop that will enliven and explore topics emerging from the discussion.
The workshop is limited to 20 participants and is free to attend.
If you wish to participate in this workshop, please email Michaela Young: firstname.lastname@example.org by the 15th August 2015 to secure a place.
