A Multidisciplinary International Conference held in celebration of IADE's 40th Aniversary!
It is the perfect and one time opportunity to “meet” the “disciplines” you will need and want to “party” with in the next few years!
For the past 40 years, IADE has mainly been a Design Institute. However, over the years it has also developed expertise in teaching and researching in the Visual Culture, Photography, Marketing and Advertising matters.
We are, therefore, calling for research papers about all areas of Design Research, as well as issues that are related with the subjects mentioned above, such as Cultural Studies, Economics, Gender Studies, Communication Sciences, Visual Anthropology and Sociology, Media Studies, Aesthetics, History of Art, Engineering, Architecture,…the list could go on and on.
The Conference's scope main objective is to examine how these subjects have evolved over the past 40 years, as well as explore and foresee how they will progress in the next 40 years.
We would like to cordially address this invitation to all our friends who have visited us in previous conferences.
