Dear List Members 

CFA: Membership and Outreach Officer, Design History Society

Founded in 1977, the Design History Society is the leading organisation that promotes and supports the study of design histories, both in the UK and internationally. Through its journal, annual conference and programme of events it brings together all those engaged in the subject – students, researchers, educators, designers, designer-makers, critics and curators among them. The Society welcomes members with interests in related disciplines such as anthropology, architecture and art history, business history, the history of science and technology, craft history, cultural studies, economic and social history, design and design management studies. 

The Society is looking to appoint a new Membership and Outreach Officer to champion the interests of its wide-ranging members and to raise the profile of the Society through varied and inclusive outreach activities.

These are the Outreach & Events Grant, supporting public events which promote design history beyond traditional academic settings, and the Day Symposium Grant, funding events around the world which disseminate high quality and original design history research.
