  11. Hello all! Following on the heels of Jessica Barness's call for papers at CAA 2020 (Design Incubation is good training ground for getting our work out there for sure!), Lisa Mercer and I have a call for papers as well: Call For Papers (Deadline: July 23, 2019) DECOLONIZING DESIGN TOWARDS SYSTEMIC EQUITY 108th CAA [fka College Art Association] Annual Conference Hilton Chicago, February 12–15, 2020 Chairs: Jessica Jacobs, Columbia College Chicago and Lisa Mercer, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign The role of the designer is shifting from that of a service provider to an individual with an epistemological understanding of design and their role in the design process. There has been an increased acknowledgement of design’s role, both in practice and in academia, in perpetuating systems of inequity through the “colonization of knowledge, the colonial conditions that inform knowledge production and validation” (Abdulla, 2016). With its focus on empathic design solutions and user research, the widespread adoption of design thinking methods has shifted some power from the designer to the user. Furthering this, some practitioners are developing methodologies that seek to intervene in and disrupt the design thinking process with new methods to foster equity-based design solutions. Designers are shifting their focus from outputs (what gets designed or built) to outcomes (future, people-centered aspirations) for longer-term, resilient, sustainable impact towards desired futures. We continue to design products, services, and systems that increase inequity, including biased algorithms, automation that leads to planned obsolescence and deskilling, and limitations on access to technology and communication. How might a change in design methods or engagement models alter solutions to be more equitable? We are interested in hearing from individuals whose scholarship and research is focused on challenging the traditional Westerns ways of knowing (Wilson, 1999) and who are developing and advocating for decolonized systems, traditions, and ways of being and knowing (Biermann, 2011). How might designers add to the discourse of a “global village” where a homogeneous world culture is dominant (Fiss, 2009)? ---- To submit a paper for consideration, please review the CAA guidelines for participants, and then email session chairs Jessica Jacobs (jjacobs@colum.edu) and Lisa Mercer (lemercer@illinois.edu) the following by July 23, 2019: 1) a completed paper proposal that adheres to the CAA template (download the template hereor directly from the guidelines page), and 2) a shortened CV (maximum two pages). Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Jessica Jacobs
  12. Dear colleagues, Below please find the call for participation for our CAA Annual Conference 2020 session, Designing Scholarship: Communication Design and Academic Journal Publishing Practices • Submission deadline: July 23, 2019. • Email submissions to co-chairs Amy Papaelias (papaelia@newpaltz.edu) and Jessica Barness (jbarness@kent.edu) • Use the submission template available at https://caa.confex.com/caa/f/tnxbicijhcpp. • Submission acceptance/rejection notification: August 22, 2019. Designing Scholarship: Communication Design and Academic Journal Publishing Practices The visual design traditions of academic journals have endured since the late seventeenth century, when Philosophical Transactions and the Journal des Sçavans began publication. Late nineteenth century publishing innovations, including stereotype printing, steam powered printing presses, and cheaper forms of paper and binding, allowed for a rapid growth of scholarly journals. In the late twentieth century, desktop publishing revolutionized and democratized the processes for reproducing images, creating page layouts, and the production of periodicals. More recently, digital publishing expanded ways of accessing, writing, and reading journals. The design of scholarship influences its credibility, comprehension, and accessibility. Printing and digital technologies, combined with visual communication design, play critical roles in establishing the conventions and future possibilities of scholarly publishing, yet limited research exists on this subject. This session solicits presentations on the design of academic journals and welcomes contributions from designers, publishers, scholars, and editors. Selected papers will investigate the past, present, and future of communication design and journal publishing. Questions that may be addressed include: What are some examples (historical or present-day) of successful partnerships between designers, editors, and journal publishers? What role does design play in the tension between scholarly goals to openly share knowledge with the financial pressures of for-profit academic publishing? What is gained or lost in the digital production and templatization of journals? Where are design innovations happening in born-digital journals, open access models, and experimental publishing platforms? How can communication design amplify scholarly publication in emerging disciplines? For further details: https://caa.confex.com/caa/2020/webprogrampreliminary/meeting.html
  13. @Steven McCarthy – I am just seeing this post and curious about this since we are looking to write new guidelines for design faculty that are different from art faculty. Your chart looks like a good way to visualize the range of research. I'm wondering if there are guidelines you may be able to share?
  14. Dear Colleagues, We invite participants to take the survey, “Investigating Perceptions of Academic Journals: Design Qualities and Reading Experiences,” an anonymous survey on the visual design and reading experiences of academic journals in any field or discipline. This survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Please find the link to the survey below: https://kent.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9t1EYBzWli2UjFH This survey will close on May 31, 2019. Please feel free to circulate this link to your colleagues, especially those in disciplines outside of communication design. Thank you for your participation, Amy Papaelias, SUNY New Paltz, papaelia@newpaltz.edu Jessica Barness, Kent State University, jbarness@kent.edu

  23. About the conference DEL (Digitally Engaged Learning) is an international conference exploring and evolving digitally engaged teaching and learning in art and design Higher Education. By ‘digitally engaged’, we are referring to practices that are actively with, about or located in digital tools and spaces. DEL is a place for creative and critical making, where you will find objects, artefacts, experimental technologies and performances alongside presentations and workshops. We welcome teachers, technicians, instructional designers, artists, makers, researchers, art historians, digital humanities scholars, and others across all creative disciplines. There are opportunities to test, share and discuss emerging forms of pedagogy, art and design practice, and research. Participants are invited to submit to the open access, peer reviewed Spark Journal, which promotes new thinking around teaching and learning in the creative disciplines. DEL is a partnership with The New School, Teaching and Learning Exchange at University of the Arts London (UAL), Penn State University and Texas State University. DEL 2019 will be hosted by the School of Art + Design at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Teaching Futures 2019 marks the centennial of the Bauhaus movement. Foundational to many of our institutions of art and design, what will these next 100 years hold for the teaching and learning we make? Education is a speculation on the future, based on the past and producing the present. What is known meeting what is unknown. Innovations in technology are built on speculations of the future enacted in the present. In the creative disciplines we design, question and imagine digital futures and the future of digital through making and teaching. Finding synthesis in these futures can impact our conceptions of curriculum, impact our teaching, and transform our creative practices. We seek proposals from teachers, technicians, instructional designers, artists, makers, researchers, art historians, digital humanities scholars, and others across all creative disciplines addressing these “Teaching Futures” that may align with one of the following tracks: The early years (Weimar): experimentation. Proposals may include a variety of experiments and innovations in curriculum, pedagogy, teaching, and learning. What do we learn through experiments? How are our classrooms in fact labs of experimentation? What methods (scientific?) do we use to establish our hypothesis and yield findings? The second phase (Dessau): art/design and industry/technology. Where are the intersections between these terms? How does the academy host industry? Wherein lie the opportunities and challenges for the industry inside learning spaces? What role does technology have in these teaching futures? The third phase (Berlin): expansion to the world. The individual, their community, their systems, the world – how does teaching and learning happen at each and between these scales? Does reimagining the next 100 years in art/design education necessitate a global framework of imagination? Any other teaching futures you would like to explore.
  24. The School of Art and Design features many areas of study and offers five undergraduate programs — communication design, studio, photography, art education, and art history. It also offers an MFA program in communication design. Our programs are nationally and regionally recognized, including our BFA and MFA in communication design. We believe in fostering conceptual and technical abilities necessary for artistic expression, and our more than 80 diverse faculty members support this effort. We are seeking a communication design educator, researcher, and BFA program coordinator to help lead our large and already successful area into an even more promising future by keeping pace with an ever-changing industry. Responsibilities include: • Coordinate BFA Communication Design Program (course scheduling, program communication, curriculum, purchasing, personnel and general management). • Teach at the BFA and/or MFA level as assigned by the Director. • Pursue research/creative activity in relevant discipline and maintain a substantive record of professional/peer recognition. • Engage in service to the school, college, university, community and profession. Texas State University, an emerging research university, offers more than 200 undergraduate and post-graduate degrees through our nine academic colleges. Located in San Marcos, it is well situated between the vibrant design and technology communities in Austin and San Antonio. Texas State University is an affirmative action equal opportunity employer. The University strives to cultivate a diversity of people and ideas, a spirit of inclusiveness, a global perspective, and a sense of community as essential conditions for campus life (www.txstate.edu/about/mission).
