10 Jan Geographics: Design, Education, and the Transnational Terrain – Call for Proposals
For many design educators working in different parts of the world today, design practice is taking place in what may be called a transnational context.
The boundaries that define the field of higher education have become increasingly fluid, and professors, students, programs, and curricula are moving back and forth between different regions of the world as never before.
The design projects, research, and institutions that result retain a unique cultural complexity because they promote meanings and values that often transcend the cultures and boundaries of the nations within which they originate.
Taking place at the East-West Center and the University of Hawai’i in Honolulu, the conference, Geographics: Design, Education, and the Transnational Terrain will provide international design educators, scholars and practitioners the opportunity to share examples of design programs, research, and projects that have been implemented within a transnational context.
Deadline for proposals is February 15, 2012.
