Teaching Graphic Design History in/of the Arab World: Narratives and Practices
DATE: Thursday 29th February / 1st March 2024
TIME: 3-5pm UK / 5-7pm Lebanon
Graphic design in the Arab world has been shaped by colonial legacies that continue to influence both its teaching and practice. This research symposium aims to explore this issue by bringing together scholars, educators, and practitioners to discuss the decolonisation of graphic design education. It aims to provide a platform to reflect on challenges and opportunities, and to consider approaches to the study of graphic design in the Arab world with a focus on the cultural, social, linguistic, and historical contexts of the region.
