New Book Series: Cultural Histories of Design

Bloomsbury Publishing UK and Professors Grace Lees-Maffei and Kjetil Fallan are delighted to announce the launch of a new book series, Cultural Histories of Design. Cultural Histories of Design presents rigorous and original research on the role and significance of design in society and culture, past and present. From a vantage point at the heart of the humanities, the series explores design as the most significant manifestation of modern and contemporary culture. This series will offer an interdisciplinary approach to design, including, but not limited to, design history, cultural studies, history, art history, business history, history of technology, anthropology, material culture studies, archaeology, geography, sociology, media studies and visual culture studies. There is more information about the series on our webpage.

Readers are warmly invited to join the editors and publisher at Bloomsbury’s offices at 50 Bedford Square, London on Thursday 25th January 2018 from 6pm until 7.30pm to celebrate the first two books in the series: Modern Asian Design, by Daniel Huppatz  and Norman Bel Geddes: American Design Visionary, by Nicolas P Maffei. The series editors and authors will briefly introduce the series and launch titles and will be available for questions and discussions. Drinks will be served. Please RSVP by 15th December to claire.constable@bloomsbury.com
