Borders are an ever more pressing issue in the 2020s. Whether geopolitical, human and non-human, or digital and physical, the solidification and liquification of borders raises questions around design's role in creating, undoing and negotiating divides.
The 2024 Design History Society (DHS) conference will explore design’s role in borders and the effect of borders on design, and it asks how looking at borders and boundaries can help further design history more widely.
The conference takes place in UCA’s Doctoral College (Rochester House, Canterbury). It runs from the morning of Thursday 5th September (registration 8.30 am – 1.00 pm) to 3.30 pm on Saturday 7th September. There will be a programme of optional visits on the morning of the 5th September and a gala dinner on the evening of the 6th; booking for these will open shortly.

The DHS 2024 conference will be taking place in person only.
