For the first time, we will host the DHS Annual Conference online. Our twofold objective is to reduce the environmental impact of short-term intercontinental travel and enable colleagues from any geography to participate in the conference regardless of distance or available travel funding. The CfP looks forward to (re-)activating dialogue and scientific exchange and encourages to test engaging formats of the remote attendance. Join the challenge of experiencing the first virtual DHS annual conference in a convivial, inspiring, and rewarding way.

We are back

Nov 13, 2020

One of the core questions of the Call for Papers when it was originally published in late 2019 was “How can the memory of design be interpreted, shared, mined or performed?”. Despite the enthusiastic response to the call, with over 250 applications received, the conference was postponed and rethought in the wake of the 2020 pandemic outbreak and the attendant rapid reconfiguration of social space. The question gained a renewed urgency in the light of the global wave of indignation that followed the latest string of deaths at the hands of law enforcement in the United States, and the subsequent calls for action to unearth, understand, and disarm the deep histories of violently and colonially acquired hegemony.

The convenor team acknowledges that the events of 2020 had a palpable impact on the academic landscape and expedited the need to address issues that require vigorous action. The 2021 DHS Annual Conference will implement a virtual model of academic exchange, in which new formats of remote attendance engage both presenters and audience. The twofold objective is to reduce the environmental impact of short-term intercontinental travel, and to enable colleagues from any geography to participate to the conference regardless of distance or available travel funding. The CfP looks forward to testing new ways to (re-)activate dialogue and scientific exchange.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference!
