  1. The State of Black Design is looking for writings and creative works for our first peer-reviewed journal to be published Fall of 2021. We are focused on four areas of Black design; Design Industry, Design Pedagogy, Black Design Organizations, and Design Activism. We are looking for contributions in the form of research papers, position papers, reports, opinion pieces, visual pieces, case studies, or frameworks. The final works will be: Research papers (4000–6000 words) Position papers (4000–6000 words) Reports (4000–6000 words) Opinion Pieces (1000 words) Visual Pieces (with 500 word explanations) Case Studies / Anti-racist Frameworks or Materials (2000-4000 words) 300-500 word abstracts are due October 30, 2020 in the form of a PDF (titled “SOBDAbstract_Topic_Firstname_Lastname.pdf” -the topic is one of the four focus areas, example: “SOBDAbstract_Design Activism_Audre_Lorde.pdf”). Send your PDF to the journal curators, Omari Souza and Terresa Moses, at info@stateofblackdesign.com. Dates to Remember October 30, 2020: Abstract Submissions Due November 30, 2020: Notification of Abstract Acceptance May 31, 2021: Full Submission Due June 30, 2021: Notification of Required Edits July 31, 2021: Final Submissions Due Fall 2021: Pre-order Announcement Questions as you consider submitting an entry are; Is rebranding racist trademarks enough? What does decolonizing design mean to you? How can we actually decolonize the field of design? How do we dismantle the hegemony in design curriculum and industry? Are we staying true to our design roots in social commentary? Can the recent momentum around racial justice be used by designers to also champion equity for other underinvested groups? How has the Black Lives Matter movement impacted the field of design and design education? How can we participate in and increase that level of diversity in the design field? How do we expand the canon of design? How do or should graphic communication designers engage with and change the broader social, economic, and political circumstances? How do we address cultural colonialism, systemization and appropriation? How do we counter misdirections and falsehoods through illuminating meaning, knowledge, and facts?

  2. Is this publication still running? if so do you know the next cut off date for submissions? I couldn't find it on the site.
  3. 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.
  4. 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). Women, members of minority and underrepresented groups, persons with disabilities and veterans are encouraged to apply. Please Click Here to apply.
