From 'Soft' to 'Hard' Power? Changing Visions of Diplomacy by Design From 1945 Onwards, Friday 27th November 9.30-5pm, M2, Grand Parade, University of Brighton
This one-day symposium will consider design, in its broadest definition, as a tool of government diplomacy from the early Cold War to the present day. Combining a range of interdisciplinary perspectives, speakers will consider how design has been used as an object of transnational diplomacy from 1945 to the present day – from buildings, to interiors, to objects, to fashion and beyond. Speakers include Susan Reid (University of Sheffield), Cammie McAtee (Harvard), Sonnet Stanfill (V&A), Tom Wilson (Design Museum), Claire Wintle (University of Brighton), Jennifer Way (University of North Texas), Katarina Serulus (University of Antwerp) and Michael Thomson (Design Connect).
Tickets can be bought here.
