Organised by Design Research Group and the Faculty of Visual Culture at
the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, the LOVE OBJECTS 
conference invites discussion and reconsideration of the relationships 
between people and their objects, concerning the role of objects in 
negotiations surrounding sex, desire, romance, identity and memory.

Keynote speakers include:
Victor Margolin, Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois, Chicago.
Dr Louise Purbrick, Lecturer in History of Design at the University of
Brighton.

Margolin is the curator of the Museum of Corn-temporary Art and the
author of many publications including: Culture is Everywhere: Selections
from the Museum of Corntemporary Art (Munich: Prestel Verlag, 2002), The
Politics of the Artificial: Essays on Design and Design Studies
(Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2002) and The Struggle for
Utopia: Rodchenko, Lissitzky, Moholy-Nagy, 1917-1946 (Chicago:
University of Chicago Press, 1997).

Purbrick has published extensively on the meanings of everyday life and
the domestic world, new museum practices and cultural policies at sites
of conflict and the material culture of the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Her recent publications include The Wedding Present: Domestic Life
Beyond Consumption (London: Ashgate, 2007) and ‘Sites, Histories,
Representations’ in Louise Purbrick, Jim Aulich and Graham Dawson,
(eds.), Contested Spaces: Sites, Histories and Representations
(Basingstoke: Palgrave, 2007).
