Thanks to funding from Nottingham Trent University's Global Heritage: Science, Management & Development Seed-Corn (Early-Mid Career) Research Fund, we were reunited with the members of Dr Hui-Ying Kerr and I's panel for the Los Angeles 2018 CAA Conference. In February 2018, we were awarded the role of co-chairs by the Design History Society to build a panel of speakers exploring so-called 'peripheral' narratives in global design history, re-examining methods by which post-war cultural practices have negotiated ideas of centrality. We are now taking this research further as a group to enable new projects and exploration.
From the 5th-7th June, the panelists reassembled in Nottingham, thanks to Dr Hui-Ying Kerr's successful bid for funding from NTU, to establish our next stage of collaborative research. Led by Hiu-Ying, the group included:
Zara Arshad, Victoria and Albert Museum / Design History Society
Rebecca Bell, Royal College of Art
Magali an Berthon, Royal College of Art
Vivien Chan, University of Nottingham / Design History Society
Ruth Clifford, Nottingham Trent University
Dr Carrie Cushman, Colombia University
Natalia Goldchteine, Independent Scholar
Di Liu, Hong Kong Asia Art Archive
Professor Susan Reid Loughborough University
We had a very rich and rewarding discussion - watch this space for the next stages of our planned research project.
