There is a Doctoral Research Fellowship available within the Back to the Sustainable Future research project.
Back to the Sustainable Future investigates how designers, educators, theorists, critics, promoters, consumers and users have conceptualized visions of sustainability in the history of design since the 1960s. The aim is to trace how notions of sustainability have migrated across time and socio-cultural domains, from design education and social activism via commercial and industrial contexts to mainstream media and consumer behavior. By doing so, we are addressing a significant lacuna in design historical scholarship and thereby expanding the subject matter of the field.
The appointment is for a duration of three years.
