Call to convene the 2023 Design History Society annual conference

Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]
Posted by: Design History Society
Deadline: Wed, June 8th, 2022

The call for applications to convene the 2023 DHS conference is now open until 8 June 2022!


The annual Design History Society Conference is a prestigious, international event, which offers a platform for an interdisciplinary approach to research and critical debate in design history. Each year the conference is hosted by a different convening institution that works closely with the Society to organise the conference on a theme chosen by the convenor. The annual conference aims to bring together and offer a forum for emerging and established scholars, museum professionals and design practitioners who engage with debates on cultures of design from both contemporary and historical perspectives. It is the particular aim of the conference to further global dialogues on design and its histories.


Past conferences have been hosted at Delft (2006), Falmouth (2008), Hertfordshire (2009), Barcelona (2011), Brighton (2012), Ahmedabad (2013), Oxford (2014), San Francisco (2015), Middlesex (2016), Oslo (2017), New York City (2018), Northumbria (2019) and Basel (2021). The 2022 conference will be held in Izmir, Turkey, as a hybrid event.


In addition to bringing your institution to the attention of the design history community, this exciting event can also offer an opportunity for delegates to visit local collections and sites significant for the study of design history.


Applications must be received by 8 June 2022 for consideration by the Society’s executive committee. Please email for an application form and guidelines. Any questions or queries regarding the application process can be addressed to the Society’s conference liaison officer, Marta Filipová, at the same address.
