Comprising seven distinct media areas plus art history, the department combines seasoned faculty expertise with state-of-the-art facilities to provide an outstanding locus for study in design and the visual arts. Over the years the Department has sponsored a lively visiting designer, artist and scholar program that brings visitors to Honolulu for lectures and workshops that complement the regular activities of the Department. These visitors have included designers Irma Boom, Elizabeth Diller and Ric Scofidio, Michael Sorkin, Stefan Sagmeister, Massimo Vignelli; artists Xu Bing, Mel Chin, Hasan Elahi, Ann Hamilton, Mona Hatoum, Pepon Osorio, Lisa Reihana; and scholars Glenn Adamson, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Wu Hung, Lucy Lippard, and Lowrey Stokes Sims. This department initiative was complemented by design-specific programming in 2012, when the University of Hawai‘i was a partial sponsor of the AIGA Educators conference: Geographics: Design, Education and the Transnational Terrain—a conference that brought over one hundred and fifty designers and scholars from twenty-three countries to Honolulu. Conference speakers included: Peter Hall, Russell Kennedy, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Sharon Poggenpohl, Ella Shohat, and Lucille Tenezas.

  24. http://chicagodesignconference.com/ This conference proposes design as a timely lens through which to re-examine the history of Chicago, a city whose past encompasses the major national and international themes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and exemplifies how geography, demographics, and politics intertwined to shape the emergence of modern design in an urban environment. Taking a broad view of design, we sought papers that shed light on practices of fashion, graphic design, architecture, interiors, decorative arts, advertising, and industrial design in Chicago between the early nineteenth century and the end of the twentieth century and that represent a diverse range of methodological viewpoints. Moreover, in order to reckon more fully with the complex interplay of grand narratives and complex local realities, we encouraged papers from any discipline that take design as a lens through which to explore aspects of the city’s history not typically considered within the frameworks of art and architecture that have largely defined the history of design in Chicago to date.
