‘Facing the World Differently? Seventy years on from the Britain Can Make It Exhibition’, 7 October 2016, University of Brighton.
This one-day symposium asks how could Britain make it in the context of its colonial legacies and the parallel ambitions of former allies and enemies to capitalise on the potential of design to make a difference? In their joint keynote, Jonathan Woodham and Paddy Maguire will draw on new research to address some of these questions.
There is currently a call for papers which can be found at: http://arts.brighton.ac.uk/research/research-events/internationalising-design-history-events/britain-can-make-it
