Gender and Design: Studies in Material Culture
This edited volume will examine intersections of design and gender across a range of historical moments, political environments and material categories. We invite readings and materialist critiques of designed objects, exchanges, spaces, instruments, affects and styles as well as evaluations of ‘design practice’ as gendered work, performance, or representation. Of particular interest are contemporary design theory, transnational design events, ecological design, new technocentric or scientific design, posthuman material culture, and local design archaeologies as they relate to the politics of gender and agency in our post-millennial era.
