Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, yesterday's (25 Jan) Reading Group has been rescheduled for 1 Feb at 5-6pm GMT. Tai will lead the session “Design Responses to Language Diversity.” Please register here (no need for re-registration)


The first two meetings of the DHS Reading Groups are coming up soon. On January 25, Tai Cossich will lead the session “Design Responses to Language Diversity” in which participants are invited to discuss what a Design Historian’s research agenda for the 2022-2032 International Decade of Indigenous Languages might look like.

On February 8, Anna Talley will lead the session “What are the Digital Humanities?” in which participants will discuss what the digital humanities are and contextualise them insofar as digital humanities scholarship relates to design history. Please find the details of each meeting below and subscribe to the Reading Groups newsletter to receive more information.

The Reading Groups are a new initiative of the Design History Society to support emerging researchers interested in developing their ideas through debate and peer-review in a friendly environment. Participants of two initial groups will work together on a panel proposal, to be considered for presentation at the DHS 2022 Annual Conference, and will collaborate with each other to develop their work to publication standards. The meetings are open to all: those interested in developing a proposal, and those interested in the reading sessions only.
