anti-po-des call for abstracts, issue 3, 2015 (Nov 2014)

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 10 Nov 2014

structures : the conceptual, physical and ideological structures by which design efforts, actions, processes, objects and discourses impact on society; and vice versa.

anti-po-des invites abstracts for papers that explore or engage with the concept of structure at the intersection of design and society. Whether from the perspective of design in society, or from the social within design(ing), it is the structures that mediate and are mediated by this relationship that we invite researchers, practitioners, sociologists and others to focus on for issue 3.

Submission of abstracts The deadline is 10 November, 2014 for abstract review. Go to: for the Call for Papers link. Please read both pages of the call and submit your abstract via the submission link, as only material which is submitted using this online submission process is considered.

We are anti-po-des design journal : an open access online design research journal. We welcome contribution of papers on design and allied matters, from New Zealand, Australian, Pacific and Pacific Rim contributors, as well as those antipode to this part of the world. Issues are themed and examine practices, issues and debates particular to the design field, as well as connecting design with other disciplines, particularly the social. Experienced researchers and new researchers are given discipline-specific, double-blind peer review.
