AIS/Design. Storia e Ricerche – n. 7 (dicembre 2015)

Il design al lavoro: la storia del progetto fra studio e impresa

a cura di Fiorella Bulegato e Dario Scodeller

 

Abstract deadline: 8 June 2015

 

“AIS/Design. Storia e ricerche” è la rivista on line, a libero accesso e peer-reviewed, dell’Associazione italiana degli storici del design. La rivista opera per l’avanzamento della ricerca in tutti gli ambiti della storia del design e per la pubblicazione della ricerca scientifica di qualità.
Il numero 7, coordinato da Fiorella Bulegato e Dario Scodeller, è dedicato al lavoro del designer nelle differenti forme in cui esso si è manifestato e concretizzato a partire dagli anni trenta del Novecento, nei campi del product, del visual e dell’exhibit design. Ci si propone di indagarne, assumendo un punto di vista interno alla dimensione professionale, il rapporto fra l’autonomia progettuale e i vincoli o le opportunità rappresentati dai contesti organizzativi, produttivi e distributivi – propri di aziende e istituzioni – nei quali il designer si è trovato ad operare.

IL CAPITALE CULTURALE. Studies on the Value of Cultural Heritage

n. 14 (2016): Museums and exhibitions between WWI and WWII

 

Abstract deadline: 15th May 2015

 

The n. 14 (2016) of «IL CAPITALE CULTURALE. Studies on the value of the cultural heritage» calls for papers on the history of museums and exhibitions between the two world wars. The monograph issue aims to deepen the knowledge of educational and social role of museums with attention to the interaction, that animates those years, between art history, popular culture, ethnography. The call is, therefore, for studies and archival research that address the topic of the museums in the 1920s and 1930s in relation to history of culture, art, architecture, conservation, social, political, administrative and economic both in the national contexts and in respect to an international horizon.
