Clive Dilnot Essay Writing

Clive Dilnot is professor of design studies in the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons The New School for Design, which he joined in 2002 as Senior Associate Dean in Academic Affairs. Previously, he was professor of design studies and Director of Design Initiatives at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and taught at Harvard University and at universities and colleges in England, Hong Kong, and Australia. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Technology, Sydney; the University of Illinois, Chicago; and Rhode Island School of Design. He has lectured, given keynote addresses, and acted as visiting critic at universities worldwide.

Originally educated as a fine artist, Dilnot later began studying social philosophy and the sociology of culture with Polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman. Dilnot has worked on the history, theory, and criticism of the visual arts in their broadest terms. Although his teaching and writing has focused on design history, criticism, and theory, Dilnot’s scholarship includes the study of ethics—a subject he addressed in his book Ethics? Design?, published in 2005—and the role of design capabilities in creating a humane world.

Apart from design topics, Dilnot has also written and taught in fields ranging from aesthetics and art theory to photography, the decorative arts, museums and their framing of objects, architecture and architectural theory, the economics of the current crisis, and the question of how we can contend, culturally, with the world we have made.

Below you can find new and old writing from The Studio at the Edge of the World.
Design Philosophy and …
Thinking for another climate; a new political imagination; beyond the peace discourse …..
These are some of the more focused concerns The Studio will pursue from mid 2018 to 2019 thereby extending design philosophy beyond the scope of the former DPP journal. This will be done by inviting selected thinkers to write essays in response to provocative position papers.

Design Philosophy Papers Archive
Design Philosophy Papers (DPP) was a refereed online journal published between 2003 and 2017 aiming to advance critical thinking on design and the-world-as-designed. The issues were organised according to themes like: design and power; design ethics; design and the global south; technology as environment;  re-materialization; user-centred design; sacred design, and many more. There are more than 140 papers in the archive available for download. Read more about Design Philosophy Papers and why it stopped publishing here.

Design Philosophy Papers was published by Team D/E/S Publications. In later years it was distributed by Bloomsbury, then Routledge/Taylor & Francis. Editorial introductions are usually by Anne-Marie Willis and most Issues have papers by Tony Fry.
