Neu: GENDER (&) Design

April 20, 2020

GENDER (&) DESIGN has been published as the second title in the book series Design Meanings (Mimesis Edizioni).

In its entire range of media and product worlds, Design is decisively involved in the cultural production and distribution of related images and interpretations of gender. This anthology examines why this is the case and what happens when it is changed, from different perspectives and knowledge disciplines relevant to design. The contributions collected in this book enter into an interdisciplinary dialogue on the design of gender and provide theoretical and methodological approaches to understanding the social, cultural and political functions of design.

The edited volume contains contributions by Uta Brandes, Wolfgang Ullrich, Sabine Foraita, Daniel Hornuff, Katharina Krämer, Birgit Weller,  Marion Godau, Tom Bieling, Antonia Wagner, Sarah Reininghaus, Julia Willms, Bianca Prietl, Tanja Paulitz, Nicola Marsden, Dorothea Erharter, Claude Draude, Till Beutling, Daniela Döring, Sabine Hahn and Fred Meier-Menzel.
