This edited volume will examine intersections of design and gender

across a range of historical moments, political environments and

material categories. We invite readings and materialist critiques of

designed objects, exchanges, spaces, instruments, affects and styles as

well as evaluations of ‘design practice’ as gendered work, performance,

or representation. Of particular interest are contemporary design

theory, transnational design events, ecological design, new

technocentric or scientific design, posthuman material culture, and

local design archaeologies as they relate to the politics of gender and

agency in our post-millennial era.

Please send abstracts in English of 300-500 words, along with a short biography by February 15, 2019 to Binita Mehta at, Pia Mukherji at, and Jennifer A. Rich at
