Designed Identities
25 April 2003

The second annual Graduate Symposium at the Bard Graduate Center will explore
how identity influences design. Do objects or structures reflect the personas
of their designers
Does personality make a difference
Is personality context
or content
How do historians approach an object whose maker is unknown
role do personal archives, diaries, or anecdotes play in the construction of
design histories

In the spirit of interdisciplinary scholarship, the symposium committee
welcomes abstracts from graduate students in any discipline and from any period
in order to generate an atmosphere of critical discussion and open dialogue

To apply, please submit a CV and a 1 - 2 page abstract for a half-hour
